“As the author of 9 cookbooks, I have established a solid list of must-have ingredients. You’ll surely find fresh tomatoes and tomato products are at the tippy top of that list. From salsa to soup, I use canned tomatoes all year long. Canned crushed tomatoes (American grown, of course!) are the star ingredient in my Basic Tomato Sauce. This recipe is my “house sauce” that I always keep stocked in the fridge and the freezer for easy weeknight meals and the best night of the week – PIZZA FRIDAY. I have been making pizza for my family every Friday night for over a decade and it never gets old.
This quick and easy soup has a symphony of exotic flavors that come together in minutes. The secret ingredients are almond butter and a protein boost from quick-cooking shrimp!
Carrot Marinara Sauce from First Bites: Superfoods for Babies and Toddlers
Spiking a basic tomato sauce with roasted carrots was my way of using up leftovers but turned into a family favorite overnight.
Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers with Salsa from Healthy Air Fryer Cookbook
A quick but filling plant-based version of stuffed peppers with flavor boosts from tomato paste and salsa.
Set it and forget it! This slow cooker soup calls for minimal effort but delivers BIG payback in the flavor department. Sautéing the veggies beforehand helps develop the flavors (which means you can cut back on the salt), plenty of herbs and spices also boost the flavor. If you don’t have a slow cooker with a sauté function, just do the first step on the stovetop.
Maybe my biggest tomato fest cookbook yet! This is a compilation of quick and easy recipes that drops 7/13/21!
A warm and cozy soup doesn’t need to take hours to make. Rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and lycopene, this soup is so good AND so easy to make.
