Recipe Directions

  1. Cut up and blend the tomatoes in a blender. You should have approximately 3 cups of pureed tomato.
  2. Drain the sun dried tomatoes (save the liquid to thin the sauce later if you need to) and add enough of them to the tomato puree until the mixture is quite thick.
  3. Add the following to your liking: garlic, onion, a little olive oil, parsley, fresh basil, sea salt, oregano.
  4. Add any other ingredients that you like in a tomato or marinara sauce (for example, cut up olives would be nice).

Kandace's Thoughts

A basic recipe for a stand-alone marinara sauce (also an ingredient in raw lasagna). Delicious with zucchini ‘pasta’ that has been tossed in pesto sauce. This is a rough description – feel free to add ingredients to your taste.

For raw lasagna (as pictured), a blender full of marinara should be just enough for one large lasagna, but have enough ingredients on hand to make a bit more sauce if you need to.

I made this the other night with all the fixings and it was super tasty. I made a 'raw'sta night out of it with zucchini noodles, this sauce, + a simple pesto recipe. This recipe makes so much; it lasted me and my boyfriend (who has the appetite of a bull) two meals plus much nibbling and snacking. (;

Tonight I'm making it again, but cutting the recipe in half for I'll be eating alone tonight. I'll still have left overs I'm sure.

This is definitely a new favorite. I love everything about it. The texture especially... yummm! Thanks so much for the recipe.

Hi Jordan, The stuffing is a "sunflower pate":http://www.therawtarian.com/community/recipe/stuffing (the picture was taken after using this sauce in a "raw lasagna":http://www.therawtarian.com/community/recipe/cilantro-carrot-salad).
