@ Happy Sunday! Tomato season summons this delish + quick TOMATO + KALE MARINARA PASTA! 🍅🍝🌿 creamy, light and slightly sweet homemade marinara sauce packed with juicy, blistery tomatoes! grab the recipe deets below, adapted to summer! 👇🏼👇🏼#vegetarianfood #pastalove
¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 onion finely diced into squares
2 small shallots finely diced
2-3 cups of fresh cherry tomatoes!
2 tablespoons of organic tomato paste
3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon of agave syrup or honey
handful of fresh chopped oregano or basil
Sea salt and black pepper to taste 🧂👌🏼
In a medium pot, warm up the olive oil and add the shallots, onions and garlic, while stirring often. Tip: garlic burns easily. You could also add it at the end, when the shallots + onions are starting to soften.
In a medium bowl, pour tomatoes and used a potato masher or wooden spoon to break them up and extract all those good juices. Add them to the medium pot you have on the stove along with any fresh tomatoes. Add the agave or honey, sea salt, pepper, and oregano. Add the tomato paste and stir well. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover the pot, and let it sit on the stove for about an hour, stirring often. If you’re not dairy-free, you could add some fresh, grated parmesan or pecorino cheese for flavor. Pour over the cooked pasta of your choice!
I sautéed some fresh kale on the side with extra virgin olive oil and garlic 💁🏻♀️✨
Not into kale? Try it with garlicky spinach, peppery arugula or a hint of sweet basil! p.s you’ll never (ever) go back to the canned stuff.😉👌🏻💃🏻
Hope you're having a great evening, friends!👋🏻✨xx
