Rich Organic Marinara Sauce
This rich organic marinara sauce recipe is the best! It offers lively tomato and herbal flavor, and it is very easy to make. The success of this recipe is hidden in the well-binded combination of organic vegetables (good canned tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, garlic), flavourful herbs (basil, parsley, oregano), hearty spices (chili flakes and paprika) and healthy extra virgin olive oil.
We recommend using canned whole peeled tomatoes, but diced work as well. Organic marinara sauce is a fool-proof recipe. As long as you use good quality organic tomatoes and fresh herbs, the rest kind of happens naturally.
Unlike most sauces that you can buy in the supermarkets, this marinara sauce is free of added sugar. The secret to the desired subtle sweetness in the sauce is onion. So don’t exclude this healthy ingredient if you aim to avoid sugar in your diet. However, you can add sugar to this recipe if you are not fussy about sugar and would like your marinara a bit sweeter.
This organic marinara sauce is perfect for any Italian dish, simple pasta dishes, or vegetarian bean dishes, such as Black Bean Meatballs with Mushrooms. It also makes an incredible pizza sauce.
Recipe yields 4 cups sauce (enough for 8 servings), and it can be doubled if desired, because it stores so well!
