Marinara Sauce Recipe

Have you ever tried to make your own marinara sauce recipe?

Marinara taste great homemade and requires only a few ingredients!

Luckily for me since it is hard to find store bought brands that do not contain an allergen; one example is garlic which is a hard ingredient to avoid.

Garlic is usually one of the main ingredients in this sauce recipe along with tomatoes, herbs and onions.

I absolutely love garlic! It used to be a staple ingredient in almost all of my recipes.

Since discovering that my nephew is allergic to garlic, I have omitted it from my diet.

It is amazing how many products have garlic as an ingredient from tomato sauce, rice, beans, and various spices just to name a few.


Marinara Sauce Recipe Ingredients:

  • 3 Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes (medium size)
  • 3 Large Fresh Basil Leaves (approx. 2 tsp.)
  • 3 Large Oregano Leaves (approx. 2 tsp.)
  • 1 Tbl. Minced Onion
  • ½ tsp. Rosemary
  • ½ tsp Thyme
  • ½ tsp. Parsley Powder
  • 2 Tbl. Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tbl. Olive Oil (plus additional for baking tomatoes)
  • 1 Tsp. Nutritional Yeast Flakes (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350

Quarter the heirloom tomatoes and place in a small baking dish, lightly coat with olive oil and bake until roasted (approx. 15-20 mins).

Once the tomatoes are roasted remove from oven and allow cooling for 5 mins.

Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until mixture is smooth.

Pour contents from blender into a sauce pan, allow marinara to simmer for 30 mins on low heat. Stir occasionally.

It’s time to enjoy! This marinara is great for pizza or over a pasta recipe or however you like it!
