For those who have a nightshade intolerance, I’ve got an AIP Marinara Sauce just for you! This sauce is Paleo, AIP, and Whole30. The texture and flavor is similar to traditional marinara sauce.
This Nightshade Free Marinara Sauce has inspired so many new and exciting recipes. You can use this sauce on pizza, spaghetti squash, stews, or pretty much any recipe that calls for tomato or marinara sauce.
What Is AIP Marinara Sauce?
AIP Marinara Sauce is sometimes referred to as Nomato Sauce. It is a marinara sauce that contains no nightshades.
If you aren’t familiar with nightshades, they are members of the Solanaceae family which includes both edible and non-edible plants. They contain certain compounds such as lectins which can make them troublesome, especially for those that are dealing with autoimmune conditions. These plants include:
- Bell Peppers
- Hot Peppers
- Goji Berries
Just to name a few. There are more than two thousand plant species in the nightshade family.
How To Make AIP Marinara Sauce
This AIP Marinara Sauce is made with a simple blend of carrots, celery, beets, onions, Apple Cider Vinegar, garlic, basil, oregano, and bone broth. This sauce is so easy to make. It is also healthy and just as satisfying as traditional marinara sauces.
Place your beets onto a sheet pan and into a 400 F. for at least 20 minutes. Be sure to pierce your beet with a fork to find out if it is done roasting. You will know that it is roasted when you are able to pierce a fork into it.
Place the garlic and onion into a cast iron skillet with Avocado Oil. Saute until the onion is soft. Add in the carrots and celery and saute for a few minutes. Add 1 cup Bone Broth along with basil, oregano, and sea salt. Allow it to simmer for at least 10 minutes or until the veggies have softened. Let cool.
Transfer the mixture along with the roasted beet to a blender. Add the Apple Cider Vinegar and blend until you have reached the desired texture.
Can I Freeze This Sauce?
This Nomato Sauce stores well in the freezer for several months which means that you can make an extra batch of this sauce and freeze it for a later time.
What Can I Pair This AIP Marinara Sauce with?
If you are Paleo or AIP, this AIP Marinara Sauce pairs well with Spaghetti Squash or Zoodles (otherwise known as Zucchini Noodles). You can also use this sauce as a base on a pizza.
Whether you have a nightshade intolerance or are just looking to change up a recipe in your dinner rotation, I hope you enjoy this AIP Marinara Sauce as much as my family does.
