About this Recipe
By: Amanda Higgins
A wonderful homemade tomato sauce packed full of vitamins and goodness! This sauce is full of hidden ingredients and is an amazing way of getting nutrients into your children without them being aware of it.
The store bought versions always have too much sugar and vinegar, making your own is so much healthier and tastier, as well as being cost effective. Imagine being able to disguise carrots and beetroot in a tomato sauce. This is truly delicious.
- 1 cup of sundried tomatoes (see recipe)
- 2 fresh dates pitted
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 3 tablespoons of grated carrot
- 2 tablespoons raw grated beetroot
- 1 teaspoon dried or fresh finely chopped basil or oregano
- ½ clove of garlic (optional)
Step by Step Instructions
So simple – put all the ingredients in a little blender and blend until smooth. If you find it is a little dry add a little olive oil or use some of the oil/liquid from the sundried tomatoes.
Scoop this into a sterilised jar and store in the fridge for about 2 weeks – if it lasts that long! It is delicious!
