Trent's Thick & Tasty Marina

Plant Based, No Oil. 3 tablespoons low sodium vegetable stock for sautéing ¼ cup (or more) low sodium vegetable stock

1 large onion diced

3 cloves garlic minced

2 large carrots diced finely

2 celery sticks diced finely

2 – 15 oz cans of tomato sauce*

2 – 15 oz cans of diced tomatoes*

1 - 8 oz can of tomato paste*


Spices (we vary quantities and combinations regularly):

½ cup basil

1 tbsp sage

1 tsp turmeric

1 ½ tsp red pepper flakes

2 bay leaves


Optional (choose one):

2 large handfuls of diced black olives

2 small handfuls of capers

2 tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce


*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!
