Veggie-Packed Homemade Marinara Sauce

This homemade marinara sauce is the perfect compliment to so many different savory foods! Slather it on pasta, meat, sandwiches, vegetables . . . the list goes on and on!

Let’s get to the recipe!

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 cup red onion, chopped
1 yellow squash, chopped into small pieces
1 zucchini, chopped into small pieces
3 carrots, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
6-8 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
pinch of stevia
Sea Salt, to taste


1.) Prepare and chop all your vegetables.

2.) In a large sauce pan, heat 1 Tbsp. of olive oil over medium heat.  Add your onions, green peppers, carrots, zucchini, and yellow squash.  Cook for 5 minutes.

3.) Add your tomatoes, vinegar, stevia, sea salt, garlic, oregano, and basil.  Increase the heat and bring to a boil.  Let cook for 20-30 minutes until the tomatoes have cooked down.

Easy peasy, and so delicious! Enjoy! 🙂
