I’m always trying to find ways to cram veggies into recipes and one of the easiest ways to blend a bunch of veggies together is to make a “sauce.” This sauce can be used on recipes such as pasta or homemade pizza.
1/2 Sweet Onion
3-7 Cloves of Garlic (to taste)
2-3 Tomatoes (to taste)
1 Red Pepper
Mixed Greens (Chard, Rhubarb,Kale)
Italian Seasoning Herbs
Parmesan or Romano Cheese (optional)
Chop all veggies. Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil. Add Italian seasoning and basil. Add veggies. You may need to add a little water to reduce the veggies. One veggies begin to soften, use a hand blender to blend the veggies into a chunky sauce. Continue to simmer and add salt and cheese to taste. The blend should taste like a “sauce.” Without the beets, the sauce will have an orange color. With beets, the sauce will appear bright red.
