I’m so excited to share my AIP friendly Nomato Sauce recipe today guys. For those of you with autoimmune conditions who find eating tomatoes like red rag to a bull this tomato-free tomato sauce is a must to try.
Tomato Free AIP Nomato Sauce
I love to use this nomato sauce as alternative to traditional passata or tomato sauce in a lasagne, chilli or bolognese (vegan or with meat, you’re choice) and it’s the base of my Vegan Keto All Veggie Butternut Lasagne. Yes a pasta free, low-carb lasagne that uses nothing but veggies. It’s good guys. Creamy, cheesy but without dairy. You’re going to love it… coming soon!
Until then i’ll happily leave you with this Nomato Sauce recipe. It’s got incredible depth of flavour and naturally sweet thanks to the veggies, without having to add any sweetener.
What would you use it in?
AIP Nomato Sauce

- Peel the squash, beetroot, carrots and onion and chop into small chunks.
- Heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Add the squash, beetroot, carrots, onion and celery. Sauté on a medium heat for about 10 minutes until tender.
