View Full Version : Marinara Without Sundried Tomatoes?
11-16-2007, 05:32 PM
Has anyone tried a raw marinara recipe *without* the sundried tomatoes? I can't stand them, but I'm dying for a raw pizza/marinara sauce! I don't have Alissa's book yet-maybe there is one there? All of the other recipes I've seen call for the tomatoes.

Yes I make it with out the sun dried Tomatoes (but also sometimes with just a little) and I love it!:D I just use extra Tomatoes.
I also use very few dates maybe 1 .
I love Allissa's recipes but don't care for the dates in her Tomato stuff, sauce and chilli lol
Make a small amount and see what you think.

Yah I've chopped up a bunch of different things (whatever you want in it) and poured it onto the sheet that came with my dehydrator (it has a lip so it doesn't drip off).
I dehydrate it all day and by dinner time it's thicker and yummier!

Alissa's sauce is really good...be sure to try it once you get her book and again, you can omit the sun-dried tomatoes.
There is also a really good sauce recipe here that I also love and it has NO sun dried tomatoes in it: http://rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?p=52048&highlight=Cappellini+Pomodoro#post52048

3 or 4 large ripe tomatoes diced quite small -make sure you use ripe, yummy tomatoes!
1 cup raw cold pressed olive oil
2 t fresh minced or ground garlic
sweet onion diced (to taste)
oregano, basil, thyme & rosemary (or italian Seasoning)
Celtic Sea Salt to taste
Mix in a bowl and cover, you can also pulse quickly in the food processor if you dont want it too chunky. Fresh basil is yummy in this. Let sit at room temperature 3-5 hours.
Serve on zuchinni angel hair pasta.
Rawkie's note: I add a little bit of sweetness (agave) to this sauce because I like my flavors sorta "balanced" but try it...it's delicious. Again, you may wish to try "gutting" out the tomatoes...sometimes I do and sometimes I don't...either way is great and the fresh basil REALLY makes this sauce super yummy!
