Such a versatile sauce! It’s delicious with a meatball recipe, but you can use it on any pasta recipe or even rice. Basically whenever you feel like using a creamy tomato sauce. The addition of Saucer ketchup really boosts the flavour and what makes it creamy are the blended cashews – no need for cream at all. You can easily sneak in some more vegetables, like pumpkin, carrots or even kumara.

 

Ingredients:

  • Half an onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 cans of tinned diced tomatoes (nothing added)
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons of Saucer ketchup
  • 1 cup of roasted pumpkin (optional)
  • 2 teaspoon of vegetable stock powder
  • 1 teaspoon of basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Half a cup of water
  • Coconut oil or any other neutral oil
  • Half cup of soaked and drained cashews (soak in hot water for at least 30 minutes)
  • Few leaves of fresh basil

 

Instructions:

  • Chop the onion and cook in a deep pan with a little drizzle of oil, until translucent. This will take about 5 minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for a few minutes longer until fragrant, stir occasionally.
  • Now add all the remaining ingredients, except the cashews and fresh basil leaves. Stir well and bring to boil, once it bubbles reduce to a low heat. Let it cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • In the meantime take your drained cashews and blend them into a paste.
  • After 30 minutes add the cashew paste and chopped fresh basil leaves, stir together and remove from the heat.

 

Serve hot with Vegan lentil “meatballs”, or over pasta…
