raw marinara sauce with zucchini noodles

It’s raw, super simple to make and tastes delicious on salads or zucchini noodles as pictured here. It’s even great on cooked pasta.



Start with softening the sun-dried tomatoes. Do this by placing them in a small bowl of warm, not boiling, water, and let soak for about 20 minutes. Drain water.

Once tomatoes are ready, place all the ingredients into a food processor/blender, and blend until mixture is fairly smooth. You can also leave it a little chunky if you like. Taste for flavor adding more of anything you like.

Store sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 – 6 days.

Serves 3


This can be served with salad, ‘noodles’, or whatever you come up with. Here’s a few serving suggestions to get you started: this Farmer’s Market Salad and this ‘Raw’sta Pasta.

Feel free to substitute any herbs and spices in the sauce, make it your own. You can use parsley, thyme, basil, or red pepper flakes to spice it up. Have fun creating!

Enjoy often!
