Print Recipe


  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth no added sugar or oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 29-oz cans crushed tomatoes
  • 1 6-oz can tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil or 12 fresh basil leaves, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • In a large saucepan, add broth, onion and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent.
  • Add remaining ingredients (if you're using fresh basil, add at the end) and cover. Cook on medium-low heat for 20 minutes.
  • Allow the liquid to reduce or add additional water to achieve desired consistency. If using fresh basil, add it now and cook uncovered an additional 5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately or store in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator.
