Nightshade Free Spaghetti Sauce

Recipe

  This is my version of nightshade free spaghetti sauce using canned carrots and canned beets. 


This sauce looks, tastes, smells, and feels like traditional tomato sauce. I love it. It is a beautiful sauce on its own, but it is especially good when you add ground beef or better yet ground Italian sausage.

This recipe is GLUTEN FREE | DAIRY FREE | SOY FREE | NIGHTSHADE FREE | EGG FREE

  

  • 1 (15oz) can of carrots, drained
  • 4 slices of the canned beets
  • ¼ cup minced celery
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4-8 tablespoons balsamic vinegar ( or more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon Oregano


Blend all of the ingredients (except the parsley) in your food processor or blender until smooth. Add the parsley and oregano. Pulse just a time or two.


Taste and adjust salt, vinegar or other seasonings. It should smell just like spaghetti sauce. It should taste like spaghetti sauce with just a hint too much vinegar. This will temper when heated.

 Use as you would any spaghetti sauce.


Add the tiniest bit of liquid smoke and you have the makings of a nightshade free sloppy joe.
