Garden Fresh Marinara

It is tomato season! Our balcony garden has been producing tomatoes and we have been loving them!

Here is a garden fresh marinara sauce that will be a great accompaniment to your next meal. It can be used as a topping over noodles, rice, potatoes, or veggies. It is easy to make and can be made from ingredients you can grow in your own garden. No water is added to this sauce as it reduces down and blends the flavors together.

I hope that you enjoy it as much as we all do!

3 cups diced tomatoes
1/3 cup diced onion
3/4 cup shredded carrots (finely grated)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon italian seasoning

Wash and dice tomatoes. Place tomatoes into a sauce pan and put on medium heat. Dice the onion and finely grate the carrots. Add them to the tomatoes in the pan. Sprinkle seasonings over the top and then stir. Bring to a simmer and stir again. Turn heat down to medium-low and let simmer, uncovered for 30-45 minutes. Do not add any water.

Sauce is ready as soon as the onion and carrots are soft or at a texture you will enjoy.

Here it is served over some Ancient Harvest noodles made from organic corn and organic quinoa flour. 
I served it with some grass-fed organic beef on the side.
