Hi everyone, I was making raw marinara sauce today and I didn't have all the correct ingredients. I had sun dried tomatoes but they were heirloom and some of them were green and yellow etc. Then of course I had yellow bell pepper instead of red. When I blended everything up the color was yellowish orangeish and looked nothing like marinara sauce. I decided to experiment and put a very small portion of beet and instantly the sauce turned the most gorgeous deep red! I am curious to know if there are other things like this people have discovered.
