Marinara Sauce<br><br><br><br>
2 large yellow onions - chopped<br><br>
4 - 6 med. cloves garlic - finely chopped<br><br>
1/4 C olive oil<br><br>
3 28 oz cans of tomatoes (a good<br><br>
tasting brand)<br><br>
12 oz can of tomato paste<br><br>
1 C dry red wine (may omit)<br><br>
1 C water<br><br>
1 T salt<br><br>
1 T sugar<br><br>
1/2 t pepper<br><br>
1 T dried Oregano (or 3 T fresh)<br><br><br><br>
Pour olive in a huge pot; add onion and garlic and sauté 8 - 10 minutes until golden. Add remaining ingredients, cover and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove lid and cook another half-hour if desired (to thicken).<br><br><br><br>
This serves 8 - 10, but you can easily cut the recipe in half.<br><br>
I often use the leftovers as a pizza sauce.<br><br><br><br>
After it's finished cooking, I use my hand blender to puree the sauce, but if you don't have one, simply blend the tomatoes in a blender or food processor BEFORE adding them to the pot.<br><br><br><br>
This is best served with fresh bread, salad and baked tofu. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Also - you may add 1 1/2 pounds of sliced sauteed mushrooms, just before serving.

The product that I use is called "Vegetarian Chicken Stock"<br><br>
it is a powder. I purchased it from Dixie Diners Club.<br><br><br><br>
I never use all of the mixture. I just keep some stored in my fridge all the time. Feel free to add more or less of anything...mine is never exactly the same. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
