Low Sodium Marinara Sauce
Recipe type: Low Sodium
Cuisine: Italian
  • 8 large tomatoes (if you're using a smaller tomato, like a Roma, then you need to increase to 16)
  • 2 small sweet peppers
  • 6 green onions
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1-2 tbsp corn starch
  • Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil, Garlic
  • Mrs. Dash Italian Medley
  • Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb (We really like garlic, but if you aren't a huge fan, you can leave this out.)
  • Crock Pot
  • Blender or food processor
  1. Quarter the tomatoes and put them in your blender or food processor (I use my Ninja Blender).
  2. Deseed the peppers and put them in the blender with the tomatoes.
  3. Cut just the white part off of the green onions and put them in the blender.
  4. Peel 3 cloves of garlic and put them in the blender.
  5. Blend all to sauce consistency and pour into your Crock Pot.
  6. Simmer on low for 4-6 hours (the longer you simmer, the more the flavors will combine together).
As the sauce simmers, it will change in consistency. If it’s too watery (some tomatoes are way more juicy than others), mix 1-2 tablespoons of corn starch with just a tiny bit of water to make a paste and stir it into the sauce. That will thicken it right up and won’t change the flavor at all.
