VEGGIE TOMATO SAUCE INGREDIENTS
• 1 Tbsp. olive oil
• 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
• 1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
• 1 zucchini, grated
• 1 carrot, grated
• 1/2 small butternut squash, peeled and grated
• 1 pinch of dried oregano
• 1 bay leaf
• 14 ounces of canned plum tomatoes
To create the sauce: Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a large saucepan and fry the onion, pepper, courgette, carrot and butternut squash for 5–10 minutes. Add the oregano, bay leaves and tomatoes, then season with salt and pepper. Simmer for about 15 minutes. You may need to add a little water if your sauce looks a little dry. Allow to cool slightly before blitzing until smooth with a hand blender. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
