Gather Your Ingredients

Easy Vegan Marinara Sauce
  • Two fresh vine ripened tomatoes
  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes
  • tomato paste
  • Small shallot
  • Garlic cloves
  • Fresh or dry thyme, oregano, basil, and/or sage
  • Olive Oil

Making Vegan Marinara Sauce from Scratch

First, wash and dry your fresh produce. Then, Dice the tomatoes. After, mince the garlic into a paste. Then peel & mince the shallot. When that is finished, if you’re using fresh herbs, remove the thyme & oregano from the stems, and, mince the sage & basil. If using dry herbs for the vegan marinara sauce, use 1/4 tsp. each of thyme, basil, oregano, and sage.

After your produce is prepared, grab a small saucepan & add 2 tsp. olive oil. Then heat the pan over medium/high until hot. When hot, add the shallot and garlic, and stir frequently for 1 minute or until fragrant.

Then add the tomato paste, and cook another 1-2 minutes or until the tomato paste deepens in color. Once fragrant, add the diced tomatoes, and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, until the tomatoes start to break down. Subsequently, add the can of fire roasted tomatoes, fresh herbs, and a pinch of salt and pepper, and bring to a boil. When boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally until the sauce thickens.

Typically, I will cook this marinara sauce on low for as long as I can. For this reason, I start the marinara sauce before I start whatever I’m serving the sauce with, for example, my vegan Stromboli! However, if you’re in a rush, this sauce will be ready with just simmering for 15 minutes!
