If you love tomato sauce, it’s quite frustrating to follow a low histamine diet. Luckily, you can substitute tomato sauce with a nomato sauce that tastes almost like tomato. Once you master this recipe, you can make your own pizzas, pasta sauce etc…which is quite awesome.
Now this recipe takes some time to make so my advice is to make a lot of it and then freeze it to use it later.
Nomato sauce recipe
- 6 carrots, peeled and diced
- 1 beet, peeled and diced
- 1 large onion, diced
- 3 celery ribs, diced
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- 2 Tsp Oregano
- 1 Tsp Garlic powder
- Olive oil
Boil beet for 10 minutes, then strain and leave on the side.
In a saucepan, heat the oil over moderate heat and add diced onion and garlic until soft and translucent.
Add in all the remaining ingredients and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer until carrots are tender.
Use a blender or food processor to puree the mixture until desired consistency.
In a frying pan, brown both sides of the turkey steaks, about 3 minutes per side. Add nomato sauce in the pan to coat your turkey. Let simmer for 1 or 2 minutes.
Serve scattered on pasta and sprinkle with basil.
