Tomato & Celery Pasta Sauce


Step 1Dice the onion. Slice the celery stalks and garlic. Pour the olive oil in a saucepan and add onion. Fry for 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant. You can fry it longer for more caramelized flavor. Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.

Step 2Finally add celery, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Optionally add 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low-medium. Simmer until the celery is tender, for 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 3Remove the lid and give it a good stir. Set aside to cool down a little before using an immersion blender and processing until smooth.

Step 4Let it cool down completely before pouring in saleable jars. Store in the fridge in sealed jars for up to a week. For longer storage, transfer to an ice tray or small freezer-friendly containers and freeze for up to 6 months. When ready to use, just pop out a few cubes.

Step 5Serve with zucchini noodles, palmini noodles or shirataki noodles and protein options of choice (chicken or any meatballs work best).
