Quick Tomato Sauce

This is an easy recipe for homemade tomato sauce that you can use as a base for vegetable casseroles, over 100% whole wheat pasta, or over brown rice.


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium yellow onion (chopped)

2 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 oz) – consider the tomatoes with herbs or roasted

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped

Saute onions in heated oil over medium heat, cooking until soft. Add tomatoes (including juice), cinnamon, and salt and pepper. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Add cilantro and simmer for 5 or 10 more minutes. Serve over pasta, rice or cooked vegetables.

  4. They are most likely okay. Study the list of ingredients listed on the label to make sure all of them comply with the Daniel Fast Guidelines.

    Be blessed.
