I CALL THIS “Miriam’s Herby Pasta Sauce” !
HERE’s a favorite recipe to share to make you feel like a HERO to your family & loved ones as you serve them vegan dishes this weekend ! This recipe is SO DELICIOUS, BUDGET-FRIENDLY & EASY to cook (my kids ate 4 servings of this!) but yields great result because your guests will TRULY enjoy this ! I’ve made this recipe way back in 2000. The very first vegan dish I have created when I decided to stop eating meat. It’s CHUNKY & HERBY comfort pasta dish ! ?
▪︎ 6-8 medium sized ripe Roma tomatoes or 30 oz canned diced tomatoes
▪︎ 1 medium onion, diced
▪︎ 8-10 garlic cloves, crushed & minced
▪︎ 1 jalapeno (optional) minced & seeded
▪︎ few tbsp salsa (optional)
few tsp each of dried basil, oregano, Italian seasoning (feel free to adjust the amount, esp the oregano to your liking)
▪︎ 1-2 tbsp ACV (apple cider vinegar) or better yet lemon juice
▪︎ 1-2 tsp natural sweetener (I prefer coconut sugar)
▪︎ Himalayan salt to taste
▪︎ Saute in medium heat without burning, each about 2 mins apart, garlic, then diced red or yellow onion, optional minced & seeded jalapeno & diced tomatoes. Optional salsa if you can get one but not so important.
▪︎ Simmer covered until everything is soft. Then add the following dried herbs, Italian seasoning, basil and generous amount of oregano (I used chopped up fresh orgeano here).
▪︎ Add ACV &/or lemon juice for some tanginess, natural sweetener to balance the tanginess out & himalayan salt to taste.
▪︎ Simmer uncovered until sauce has reduced. Sauce should not be soupy.
▪︎ Then serve with your choice of pasta! I suggest gluten-free pasta if you can. Enjoy !
