Day 188 – Spaghetti alla Marinara

I’ve made a few different raw Marinara sauces over the past year and I have to say this is my favourite and the kids agree.  I am not sure if it is the quantity of sun-dried tomatoes to fresh or the addition of the savoury yeast or simply adding of a date to the sauce – but this is a really yummy raw tomato sauce.

I had mine with spiralled zucchini and the kids have theirs with ordinary pasta.  Everyone was happy!

Ingredients:… serves 4….

1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked for 30 mins and drained

2 medium ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1 pitted date

1 small garlic clove, peeled

2 Tbsp. savoury yeast

1 Tbsp. olive oil

2 Tsp. oregano

1 Tsp. balsamic vinegar

1/2 Tsp. sea salt

1/2 – 3/4 cup filtered water, as needed

For the spaghetti, 1 medium zucchini (spiralled) per person or pasta of your choice

Method:

Combine all ingredients including 1/4 cup water in a high speed blender and blend until combined.  Add more water a couple of Tablespoons full at a time until it reaches your desired consistency.  The sauce should be quite thick.

Toss the marinara sauce with your spiral zucchini or pasta and serve.

Yummy  and very popular with the WHOLE family!
