Mock Tomato Sauce Recipe

The beet in this recipe is added merely for color and will not cause a problem. This recipe is included for those who love tomato sauces. Adding apple cider vinegar at the end of cooking will more closely duplicate the acidic quality in a tomato sauce. Great over millet or buckwheat croquettes.


  • 3 Tbsp. organic, unrefined coconut oil, ghee, or butter
  • 4 cups diced red onion
  • 3 Tbsp. garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. pizza seasonings (Spice Hunter)

  2. Add pizza seasoning and zucchini and continue to sauté.
