๐Ÿ… BASIC INSTANT POT (or similar) MARINARA


๐Ÿ… Tomatoes – ripe (but still firm) works best
๐Ÿง… Onions – I like Red Onion but anything from Spring Onions to Shallots will work
๐ŸŒถ๏ธ Peppers – Bell, Poblano, Anaheim, Jalapeรฑo or Shishito (*optional)
๐Ÿ„ Mushroom (*optional)
๐Ÿฅ• Carrots/Celery (*optional)
๐Ÿง„ Garlic
๐ŸŒฟ Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Basil to taste
๐Ÿง‚ Seasoning of your choice to taste – I like Minced Onion, Parsley Flakes, Smoked Chili Sea Salt, Nutritional Yeast, Soy Sauce, Italian Seasoning

๐Ÿ”ช Roughly chop vegetables. Add everything to the pot and set for 25min on Pressure/Manual. Natural Release for 15min. No liquid added/needed as the tomatoes release plenty of their own.

๐Ÿ”นIf you want a thicker sauce, add a can of tomato paste.

๐Ÿ”น If you want a thinner sauce, add a can of crushed tomatoes or 1 cup of your favorite stock.

๐Ÿ”นIf you want a smoother sauce, blend with an immersion blender or in a food processor after it has cooled.

๐Ÿ”น If you want a chunky style Farmhouse Sauce, chop your veggies into appropriate size pieces to leave intact after cooking.
