Raw Vegetable Quick Pasta Sauce

Posted Aug 06 2011 1:53pm

   If you don’t eat enough vegetables, if your kids don’t eat enough vegetables, if you have no idea what to do with vegetables, I have a solution for you! Pull out your blender and set your timer for five minutes. This is how long it will take you to make a nutrient-rich and vitamin-dense healthy pasta sauce.

Last night, I spent exactly ten minutes preparing dinner for the family of five. I also spent 45 minutes cleaning up after the babies, but it’s a different story.

This recipe yields a lot, so after feeding quinoa pasta, topped with this sauce and a bit of parmesan cheese to my family (including the babies, who ended up being covered in this wonderful sauce head to toe, because they loved it so much) I froze the rest of the sauce. Right now, I have enough stored for at least two more family meals!

If you don’t have some ingredients, try to substitute them for the similar ones.

Example: kale-arugula, carrots-butternut squash, zucchinis-broccoli. Tomatoes, garlic and basil are mandatory. Pesto sauce can work instead of the sundried tomato jar.

So, pasta sauce:

Ingredients:

2 zucchinis

2 carrots

3 kale leaves (stalks discarded)

4 medium tomatoes

1/2 medium onion

5 garlic cloves

7  basil leaves

1 small jar sundried tomatoes in oil

1/2 – 3/4 cup olive oil

sea salt, paprika to taste

Blend everything together until smooth. Add water, if you want the sauce more liquid in consistency.
