Is there anything like a nice red sauce. My new neighbor, Kahty, gave me a taste of her sauce over the fence the other day and WOW, it was all that I could think about for days. So it pushed me into the kitchen to create. Let me tell you right off, hers is amazing and just today she showed up at my house with a tub of her sauce. I could not even wait until dinner, I put the pot of water on to boil and within a few minutes I was feasting on her sauce. But until today I had to do my own and it is great. Fresh and tasty. I do think Kathy would be pleased with my end result. I like the visual of step by step instructions. So join me now as I explain just how to make a great sauce. And of course I added a grain to mine, it ups the nutrition and flavor. How could I not add a grain??
|Everything Fresh and ready to go.|
|Fresh Egg Plants and herbs from my garden.|
|The Egg Plants are heirloom ones. They are small, but tasty.|
|I used a jar of my bottled tomatoes with garlic.|
|To start I added some oil to a large enameled pan.|
|Chopped the fresh peppers. Grow in my garden.|
|Onions and peppers sauted togethers.|
|In the food processor I added the herbs and fresh swiss chard.|
|The jar of tomatoes.|
|It looks like salsa now. This is added to the pot.|
|Peel the egg plants.|
|Chop them up.|
|This is the meat with uncooked red quinoa.|
I brown the meat with the quinoa and than add it to the pot.
|I love the Honeyville tomato powder. It has a great|
rich tomato taste.
|A closer look at the red quinoa. I love red quinoa.|
|Here is the sauce. It simmers for a while and oh my, it turns out great.|
Some dished take longer and require preparation, I don't always cook dished that take time, but when I do I am always thrilled with the end result. This sauce gets better the next day. My family loves it, by the way I don't tell them about the egg plant. They would not eat the sauce if they new. Sneak nutrition does work. Chef Brad~America's Grain Guy
