Batch Cook: Chunky Marinara

IMG_0374 IMG_0376I’ve been batch cooking on weekends when I’m home to help get my family through the week. This week, I have made some baked tofu, will do biscuits and gravy later, and have a giant pot of chunky marinara sauce on. I thought I would share the marina recipe here (though it’s an easy one). This makes a HUGE batch. It freezes well and can be kept in the fridge for a week. I suggest keeping it in a glass container or jar.

Chunky Marinara

Ingredients
3 sweet onions, chopped
8-10 celery stalks, diced
6-8 summer squash, diced
4-6 garlic cloves, minced
3 large (28 oz) cans of diced tomatoes
2 large (28 oz) cans of tomato sauce
6 T Italian seasoning
3 T salt
1 cup nutritional yeast
Pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to a large pot (I use a pressure cooker with lid off). Bring to a boil and then turn heat back to maintain a simmer for several hours. The longer it cooks, the sweeter it will get.

Serve over pasta, on pizza crusts, on bagels, over rice, or over roasted vegetables.
