Tomato Sauce



  • 3 TB oil and/or butter
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 1 small red onion (or half a large one), medium dice
  • 3 carrots, medium dice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 can of tomatoes (28 oz can= about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley leaves
  • 1 TB oil or butter (or cream or cashew butter)
  1. Toast the rosemary over low heat in the fat. Cook 3 minutes per side until wilted and fragrant. Discard rosemary.
  2. Add onions and carrots to the oil with a nice pinch of salt and cook over medium low heat for about 7 minutes, to soften the veggies. Add the garlic and stir.
  3. Add a can of tomatoes, apple cider vinegar and two large pinches of salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat and reduce to simmer. Simmer for 1 hour. Puree in a blender. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Stir in chopped parsley leaves and extra 1 TB of fat.
  5. Sauce is ready to enjoy! Can refrigerate for a week or freeze for a couple months. Freeze in mason jars or freeze in silicone molds. Unmold and store in mason jars in the freezer for easy access to small servings of sauce!
