10 Minute, No-Cook Marinara Sauce

10 Minute, No-Cook Marinara Sauce

I have a love-hate relationship with summer. Yes, the sun feels wonderful and it's nice wearing sandals every day and I love watching Riley play outside in the kiddy pool. But summer can be hot. And for someone who spends the majority of her time Kent he kitchen, this can be a big problem.  Fortunately, there are a few special occasions that help me get through the heat with a smile on my face: I get to celebrate my wedding anniversary, my birthday, my husband's birthday, my sister's birthday,  hopefully a few Minnesota boat rides and a trip or two to Crested Butte somewhere in the middle.

Now, if I could get my kitchen to be less than 5 million degrees every time I even think about cooking anything, we could be talking about a real-love kind of situation between summer and me. Until that happens, at least I have this 10 minute, no-cook marinara sauce in my corner. 


10-Minute No-Cook Marinara

Makes about 4 cups

  • One 28 oz can fire roasted tomatoes, whole or diced
  • 1/2 large yellow onion
  • 1 large carrot or 2-3 small
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano or basil (or a combination of both)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  1. Begin by putting the tomatoes and their juice in the bowl of a food processor.
  2. Cut the yellow onion and carrots into large chunks. Peel and smash the garlic cloves. Add to the food processor.
  3. Pulse until the mixture is nearly a purée. Add the oregano and pulse again until fully incorporated.
  4. Add the salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
  5. Use the way you would any jarred sauce.
