Homemade Keto Friendly Marinara Sauce in 5 minutes
Our recipe uses a can of crushed, pureed or plum tomatoes but choose the one with no added sugar (check the ingredient label when buying). It all goes in a blender with a little olive oil and your favorite spices. We love garlic powder, onion powder and some dried herbs. The flavors are fantastic and it’s way cheaper than buying pre-made jarred sauces. You can also cook the sauce on low simmer for for about 10-15 minutes if you want. This concentrates the flavors a little more and cooks the sauce, especially when you’re using it straight for dipping.
