Making a Basic Marinara Sauce

I make this basic tomato sauce all the time, it’s great on pizza or pasta and it’s completely vegan. I never add sugar, the onion and carrots give it a natural sweetness, here’s how I do it:


1 carrot chopped

1/2 onion chopped

2 cloves garlic chopped

1 can San Marzano crushed tomatoes

small bunch fresh basil (optional)

In a large pot add 2-3 tbs olive oil heat up then add the carrot, onion and garlic and let simmer for 5 mins then add the crushed tomatoes and cover slightly and simmer for 20-30 mins. At this point I add some salt and the fresh basil sometimes a pinch of red pepper flakes then I cover the pot and let it rest for 15-20 mins then after that I use an immersion blender to purée the sauce and use right away or it can be refrigerated or even frozen in jars for later use.
