Easy Vegan Pasta Sauce by Boutell.Com

Category: Dips/Spreads/Condiments

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.



1 teaspoon vegetable oil

half a small yellow onion, diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

6-8 small roma tomatoes or 4-6 large red tomatoes

1 small green bell pepper (optional)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano



Sauté the onion and garlic in a saucepan. (Place the onions in the pan first, and add the garlic on top of the onion. This procedure will keep the garlic from burning.) Turn the heat to low or medium-low.

While the onion and garlic are cooking, chop the tomatoes into cubes. An easy way to chop them is to slice them in half, then julienne the halves, and then chop the julienne slices into small cubes. Some people prefer large chunks while others prefer a very smooth texture close to purée. Either size works fine for this recipe and the cooking time does not need altering for large or small cubes.

Place the tomatoes into the onion and garlic sauté and stir. Add the diced bell pepper (optional) and stir. Add the spices and stir again. Let simmer whilst preparing pasta. Stir occasionally, turning down the flame if it sticks.

When the pasta is done, spoon the sauce onto the individual servings of pasta or mix with the entire batch, following your own custom.

Additional comments:


Tomatoes have a high acid content, so experts advise that tomato dishes be cooked in pans that do not have a non-stick coating.

Serves three to four. A rule of thumb is to use two or three roma tomatoes per serving. Added bell pepper will increase the yield, of course.

The sauce should be used within three or four days of preparing. It freezes OK but is much better fresh.

When preparing this recipe and any other food you enjoy, please use organically-grown vegetables, fruits, grains, and flavorings. The Earth you save may be your own.
