A beautiful fresh and flavorful marinara sauce made with cherry or grape tomatoes. It can be low fodmap, and is amazing on meatballs, pasta, pizza, and more!



Homemade Marinara Sauce:

  • 2 pints of cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 45 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (omit if low fodmap)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk or chicken stock


Homemade Marinara Sauce:

  1. Add olive oil to a medium sized skillet. Add all of the tomatoes and all of the seasonings. Cover and simmer over medium low heat for about 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. When tomatoes have popped slightly or are a soft texture to the touch, add the almond milk or chicken stock and stir.
  3. Transfer carefully to a magic bullet/nutri-bullet/food processor, and blend until desired sauce consistency. If it is too thick, you can water/chicken stock, one tablespoon at a time, until you like the consistency.
  4. Enjoy on pasta, meatballs, etc.
