Easy Crock Pot Tomato Sauce. Tomato Sauce is a lot like ketchup and BBQ Sauce, in the fact that you can’t seem to find a store bought kind that doesn’t contain processed sugar.
So, I set out to create a super easy, crock pot tomato sauce that tastes great with no added sugar. When we got our co-op basket this past week, I saw a package of tomatoes on the vine and I knew I was going to use them for sauce.
This sauce is so easy that you really just throw everything in the crock pot and walk away. Plus, it makes a ton. We freeze it for those busy days when you need to make dinner in a hurry.
You can pull it out in the morning and let it defrost on your counter top all day.
Easy Crock Pot Tomato Sauce
3 hrPrep Time
3 hrTotal Time
- 12 vine ripened tomatoes peeled and chopped
- 1/2 onion rough chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh flat leaf parsley chopped
- 10 basil leaves
- 2-3 garlic cloves minced
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1 tsp oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
- Throw everything in the crock pot and cook on high for at least 3 hours.
I like to cook it longer because the longer it cooks, the more developed the flavor gets. If the sauce seems thin to you, you can thicken it with a tablespoon of arrowroot. You can also uncover and let it reduce while cooking. This sauce would also make a great sauce for my Rustic Vegan Pizza . If you like a super smooth sauce, feel free to blend it with an immersion blender.
