*There are a variety of no salt added tinned tomatoes out there and that is what we use.
Directions: Use veggie stock to sauté onions and garlic until transparent, then carrots and celery for about five minutes. Simmer the rest for as long as possible. Directions: Add everything to a slow cooker or CrockPot. Cook on high for 3 hours and on low for the rest of the day or until thickened. Jay’s Note: Watch out for low sodium labels that aren’t truly low sodium. Compare labels!
