Easy Marinara Sauce

Easy Marinara Sauce (From The Vegan Chef)

This sauce is very easy to make without the added salt, oil, and sugar of jarred sauce.


  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 T. garlic, minced
  • 1 t. dried basil
  • 1 t. dried oregano
  • 1/8 t. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 – 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes


  1. In a medium saucepan, saute the onion in water for 3 minutes to soften.
  2. Add the garlic and saute an additional 1-2 minutes while stirring constantly, or until fragrant but not browned.
  3. Add the dried herbs and pepper and saute an additional 30 seconds.
  4. Add the crushed tomatoes and stir well to combine.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the mixture for 10 minutes to blend the flavors.
  6. Add to your favorite bean pasta & veggies or with a bean, rice, & veggie bowl.

This makes about 3.5 cups of sauce.
