Red Pepper and Tomato Sauce Recipe Vegan

This is another sauce that is comprised mainly of the vegetable components. No milk. No cream. No tofu. 

A little bit of water and oil help to bring everything together. 

The combination of red bell peppers and tomatoes is a winning one. They complement each other so well. 

Once you taste how beautifully they go together, you may never make another tomato sauce without some red bell peppers. 

This is a versatile sauce that can be used on pasta, rice, salads or even sandwiches. 

It's 100% vegan and 1000% delicious. Sweet, slightly acidic, a little earthy and also some heat. 

You don't have to take my word for it. It's very easy to make. Just try it and see. 

1 medium red bell pepper
1 plum tomato
1 jalapeno
1 serrano
1 habanero
5 cloves garlic
1 3/4 cups water
1 tbl oil
2 tsp basil
1 tbl salt
1 tsp black pepper

Add all the vegetables to a small frying pan. Allow the veg to char over medium high heat and get some color. Stirring occasionally.

When you're satisfied your veg have some nice char on them, add the oil and salt and saut√© 3 more minutes.  

Decrease the heat to low, wait one minute and then stir in half the water, the basil and the black pepper. Raise to medium heat and allow to simmer until reduced by one third. Then stir in the rest of the water and reduce again by one third. 

Add the contents to a blender. Allow to cool for 5 minutes uncovered. Then puree until smooth. 

Way better than store bought tomato sauce!
