No ‘matoes? No problem! You can still have a beautiful, rich and bold flavored sauce that will give you the sensation of a beautiful tomato inspired base.
Let me just say that I wouldn’t normally spend the time to make my own tomato sauce since there are so many great brands out there these days. However, tomatoes make me incredibly itchy so I just stay away from them.
I have been exploring a lot of different recipes for Nomato sauces and what I have been finding is that so many can be lacking flavor. I decided to take on this personal challenge to create a Nomato sauce that will tickle your taste buds and make you want to watch a marathon of Real Housewives of New Jersey.
- 6 cloves of chopped garlic
- 1 10oz container of mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary
- 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme
- 2 tablespoons of dried oregano
- 2 handfuls of parsley
- 4 teaspoons of basil
- sea salt to taste
- 8 oz of organic vegetable stock (no tomato)
- 1/2 cup of red wine
Place all of your ingredients into your pressure cooker or crock pot. If your are using a pressure cooker, set your setting for Slow Cook and set for 2 hours. If you are using a crock pot set for 4 hours.
Once it is done, let it cool. Then, contents in a blender and blend until smooth. You can then use however you would like. I cooked a bunch of zucchini noodles with it and it was absolutely delicious.
