Moroccan Homemade Pasta Sauce.

March 10, 2017

A quick, easy, fresh pasta sauce! Packed with spice and punch.

What do you need?

1 x handful of fresh basil

2 x cloves of garlic 

1/2 x pack of plum tomatoes ( fresh )

1 tsp of cinammon

1 tsp of chilli pepper

3 tsp of morrocan spice paste

10ml of red wine vinegar

10ml of soy sauce

Firstly roast your tomatoes & garlic in a fam assisted oven at 180 degrees C for 20 minutes.

Then add all your ingredients to your blender.

Add your roasted veg and herbs to the mix, adding in water to create the consistency you like and salt and pepper to taste.

Blend well.

Cook and prepare your pasta, adding the sauce into the pan and warming through. I often use the water left from boiling the pasta to use to monitor the consistency of the sauce. As I don't want to lose any of the nutrients from my edamame pasta. 

Like a yummy sauce that packs a punch then this sauce is fore you.

Try it out and let me know what you think!

Happy Saturday - lots of love, peace and love

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
