How To Make Vegetarian Meat Sauce

Make a delicious meat sauce sans the meat with this recipe. It’s made with mushrooms, chickpeas, and tomatoes cooked with vegetable broth.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 25 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 10ozcremini mushroom
  • 1white onion
  • 2tbspoil
  • salt and pepper,to taste
  • 4clovesgarlic,minced
  • tsporegano,dried
  • ¼cuptomato paste
  • 28oztomato,(1 can) crushed
  • 2cupsvegetable broth
  • 15ozchickpeas,(1 can), drained
  • fresh basil,for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, pulse the mushrooms and onions about 10 times until broken into uniformly fine pieces, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat.

  3. Pour the mushrooms and onions into the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for about 8 minutes until the veggies have released moisture and softened.

  4. Add the garlic and oregano. Sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.

  5. Push the veggies to the sides of the pan and add the tomato paste, slowly mixing in the veggies from the side until a uniform paste has formed.

  6. Add the crushed tomatoes and stir until well combined and thick.

  7. Add the vegetable stock and stir until the sauce has thickened slightly. Reduce the heat to medium-low if it is bubbling and popping too much.

  8. While the sauce simmers, place the chickpeas in the food processor and pulse about 10 times until broken into fine pieces.

  9. Pour the chickpeas into a fine mesh strainer and submerge in a medium bowl filled with water.

  10. Shake the strainer for 1 minute to remove starches from the chickpeas. Remove the strainer when the water has become very cloudy from the starches.

  11. Transfer the chickpeas to the sauce and stir for at least 1 minute to give the chickpeas time to cook.

  12. Use the sauce as desired for pasta, veggie noodles, calzones, etc. Enjoy!
