Chunky Tomato Mushroom Sauce

Kathy W


This recipe is good year round, but is especially good when you can use fresh from the garden cherry tomatoes.

It is based on a recipe that comes from A CELEBRATION OF WELLNESS cookbook.

How to Make Chunky Tomato Mushroom Sauce


  1. Saute garlic and onion in oil and aminos for 5 minutes over medium low heat.
  2. Add mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are done and onions are tender.
  3. Add cherry tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper and simmer until tomatoes are softened and give up their juice - about 10 minutes or so. Depending on how juicy the tomatoes are, you may need to add a little water.
  4. If the tomatoes are real juicy and a thicker sauce is desired, combine 1/4 c water and cornstarch. Slowly add half to sauce, bring to a boil. Add more if needed.
  5. Serve over pasta.
