I love this easy roasted garlic tomato sauce because it comes together in minutes but tastes rich and savory, like you cooked it for hours. Perfect on veggie meatballs, pasta and pizza – anywhere you need some extra flavorful sauce!
Roasted garlic is what makes it so good. Once it’s blended up with the other ingredients it adds a thick richness and depth of flavor that makes the sauce taste like it cooked forever. It’s so savory! I would proudly put this sauce up against a non-vegetarian sauce any old day of the week, and that’s why I recommend this as a #MeatlessMonday choice. If you’re not used to veggie cooking, this is a great recipe to experiment with because pretty much the last thing you’ll say when you taste it is, wow, that’s a vegetarian sauce.
Roasting garlic is really easy. All you do is cut the bottoms off a few heads of garlic, douse them in a little olive oil and pop them into muffin tins. Cover them with foil and bake in a 400 degree oven for about half an hour. That’s it. Super easy.
