It doesn’t always get enough salt out, in my opinion, but at least it tries. And in the process hopefully it gets viewers to think about eating healthier foods. I’ve blogged about a roasted cherry tomato sauce (we call it gravy) recipe I tried from the show. Recently, I saw another tomato sauce recipe there I plan to try as well.
The ingredient list includes:
2 roasted red bell peppers (or 1 jar roasted red bell peppers)
2 whole tomatoes
¼ red onion
1 tablespoon fennel seed
6 fresh basil leaves
1 cup baby kale
1 clove garlic
Splash of balsamic vinegar
And the instructions for making it couldn’t be simpler:
“Add all of the ingredients for the sauce into a bowl. Use a hand blender to purée the sauce.”
You then simply simmer the sauce to heat it. The recipe also calls for adding in some pasta water. That sounds a little gross to me, I don’t like watery sauce (gravy). I also might be tempted to leave out the kale. I like the idea of the red pepper, I’d go with fresh rather than jarred though, the jarred one likely has salt added.
