The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

I love using this raw tomato sauce recipe as a raw pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce and more! Serve as a raw spaghetti sauce over raw zucchini noodles, chopped cabbage as noodles or raw kelp noodles. This raw tomato sauce recipe can also be used as a raw pizza sauce on top of a raw pizza crust.

This recipe keeps well in the fridge for up to three days.

The sun-dried tomatoes will make or break this recipe. They need to be chopped a bit and soaked in oil to soften them. (I generally always store my sun-dried tomato slices in extra virgin olive oil in a jar in the fridge. It's easiest if they are chopped before soaking in oil, too.)

This is a small batch. However, the flavour of this raw tomato sauce recipe is so strong (thanks to the sundried tomatoes) that a little sauce goes a long way.

Just made this for my dinner - it was gorgeous. I had it with courgette (zucchini) strips (I haven't got a spiralizer yet - it's on order though) topped with nutritional yeast flakes and an avocado. I also added some red bell pepper to the sauce. Totally scrummy, thanks Laura-Jane.

Sarah, I love, love, love my spiralizer. It seems like I don't use it enough, mainly for zucchini but I could eat zucchini with this tomato sauce every day. I bought mine on Amazon.

I bought mine on Amazon too, Lately, I have also been enjoying spiralized daikon radish (a huge long radish that looks kind of like squash)  and including it in some of my salads for extra flair. I usually spiralize the whole thing, and then keep the spiralized "noodley" things in the fridge, and they last all week.

I do love how easy spiralizers are to clean.

Hi Sarah, so glad you enjoyed this one. I am excited for the arrival of your spiralizer. It makes recipes like this one that much more presentable and fun to make too. :)

Hi, Laura. I'm planning to start raw and have been 'stalking' your site to learn some recipes :) It's very helpful for a rookie like me. Your recipes are so simple and easy to prepare. Anyway, one question, can I subs sun-dried tomato with the fresh one?

It's a flavor explosion, isn't it Mel! I just love this one too. I've made a lot of other attempts, and this has been by far the best. And zestiest!

I haven't tried this one but love your tomato soup one and look forward to trying this one! I was doing a 14-day juice cleanse and made some raw soups also so I am definitely leaning towards probably a 50% raw diet and 50%fish for now. i lost 12 pounds on my cleanse and am clear that this is my natural weight, thanks for your dope recipes! Oh one question - can something replace cashews in your recipes, alot of them have cashews in it and I hear we shouldn't get too comfy with cashews all the time in our diet. please share your thoughts...

Hi Akua, in general I recommend *not* substituting as that tends to not go so well as a general rule. However, what you could do is look for soup recipes that call for avocado instead of cashews. In raw soups, the cashews perform the "creamy" function, which avocados also do ver very well. If you google, say, "raw celery soup" + "avocado" you will probably get some nice recipes that use avocado as creamy ingredient. Hope this helps! glad to have you here :)

Hi!
I was just wondering how much weight you lost by going raw?
How long did it take for you to see a measurable difference?
Do you have a set menu that you do every week or do you change it up ?
Thanks
Annie

Hi Annie, I lost approx 25-30 lbs when going raw. I definitely saw a noticeable difference after the first three weeks. I do not have a set menu every week - I tend to eat the same thing for a few days, then I move on to something else until I get tired of it

This sounds delicious! Can you soak the sun-dried tomatoes in water instead of oil to soften them?

Hi Savannah, if you soak in water you may want to add some extra oil to the recipe to make up for it, and make sure not much excess water (if any) gets into the recipe

Can you freeze this? I would like to make alot ahead of time but don't know how I would store it.

I have never freezed this. To be honest, I wouldn't freeze a big batch because I am having a feeling that it wouldn't freeze very well - like, it would separate a bit. You could try with a small amount and see how it goes. Sorry, not overly helpful but honest :)

I would also like to know the answer to this! Or how long it keeps in the fridge. :)

Keeps really well in the fridge (3-4 days). Just give a stir before serving, And you might want to take chill off by placing in dehydrator first (just to warm it up a bit)

How would you rewarm sauces, without a dehydrator? I am in the beginning stages of going raw, and don't have a dehydrator.
