One of the foods I miss the most, since going nightshade free, is spaghetti sauce. I’ve been able to add back most nightshades; but, not tomatoes. It’s hard to do without some of my favorite foods like paleo pizza, lasagna, and chili. Poor me.
Then, I saw a couple of recipes for tomato-less sauces, using beets. I’d have to say, I was more than a little skeptical. One of the recipes didn’t seem to have enough ingredients to cover the beet flavor. The other recipe used wine, which I preferred not to use, due to nitrates. I wanted a recipe that was as autoimmune friendly as possible. So, I decided to create one.
This recipe is the result of my efforts. I made it completely AIP compliant. The best part….IT TASTES FANTASTIC! I didn’t even taste the beets at all. It’s like they absorbed the flavors of the beef, herbs, and garlic. I think you’ll really love it. Even I was surprised at how tasty it was.
Let me know how you like it! I would love to see pictures, too. If you do attach a photo, let me know if it’s okay to use on my social media sites too.
