VERY VEGGIE TOMATO SAUCE
SUITABLE FROM 6 MONTHS
MAKES 1 LITRE / PREPARE 15 MINS / COOK 45 MINS
1 Red pepper
1 Medium onion
2 Garlic cloves
1 Small courgette
2 Medium carrots
800g Organic tomato passata
2 tbsp Refined Olive Oil
3 sprigs Fresh Parsley
Salt & Pepper
Peel and quarter the onion. Scrub and chop the carrots in large chunks. Chop the onions and carrots in your Béaba Babycook until quite small.
Wash and chop the pepper and courgette in large chunks too. Peel and crush the garlic. Chop the peppers, carrots and garlic in your Béaba Babycook until quite small.
Heat the olive oil in a heavy bottomed pan and gently fry the veggies until soft but not brown (10-15minutes)
Add the passata, bring to the boil and lower the heat and simmer very gently for 45 minutes, stirring every now and again to ensure it is not catching at the bottom. If it is, lower the heat and add a little water.
Once is cooked, correct the seasoning and add the basil leaves. Blitz in your Béaba Babycook until you get your desired consistency – from chunky to very smooth.
Serve with pasta, chicken dishes or use as a base for soups and stews.
Carrots are high in FIBRE that helps intestinal health & transit
Carrots and red peppers contain VITAMIN C that supports the immune system and β CAROTENE a powerful antioxidant. Our bodies can produce VITAMIN A from β CAROTENE to support vision.
Onions contain FIBRE to help intestinal transit and prebiotics which feed the beneficial bacterial in your gut.
Garlic is high in an important antioxidant, VITAMIN C which also supports the immune system. Laboratory tests indicate that garlic has anti-inflammatory properties and may help modulate the immune system.
Tomatoes are high in FIBRE that maintain a healthy digestive system and keeps us fuller for longer, VITAMIN C, an antioxidant that protects our bodies from the damage generated by free-radicals and also helps support our immune system, and the carotenoid LUTEIN that gives tomatoes their bright red colour and is an antioxidant that research shows may help maintain eye health and LYCOPENE which helps prevent certain cancers.
