Nightshades give me belly aches and don’t do any favors for my arthritis, either. So this Spaghetti with Nomato Sauce has become my go-to substitute for tomato paste, puree, and sauce. Not only does the sauce work well in soups, stir-fries, and curries, but it makes for a fantastic autoimmune protocol-friendly spaghetti. It smells just like real marinara sauce and has a rich, beautiful color thanks to the beets. Since its inception this recipe has become a staple, with portions of sauce stored in the freezer for easy access any time I need it. (It keeps for about three months in my experience.) If you feel the sauce is too thick, add vegetable broth to taste while blending. I like to make it with multicolored carrots for a somewhat darker, more reddish hue, but the flavor will turn out just as well with orange carrots if that’s all you can find. And the color varies every time I make it, so don’t be concerned if yours doesn’t look quite the same.
