All-Day Marinara Sauce

Editor's Note:Have you ever wanted to make your own marinara sauce, but were daunted by the time it takes to make it? Then this recipe for All-Day Marinara Sauce is just what you need. Using a slow cooker, you'll cook the sauce for as little as six hours and up to 10 hours. All of that effort will be worth it, as you will have plenty of marinara sauce to incorporate in your favorite Italian recipes. Your family and friends will be suitably impressed when you present them with a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs topped with your homemade marinara sauce. Directions on how to store the homemade marinara sauce are at the bottom of the page.

The slow cooker is the ideal vessel for long, slow marinara sauce. You don’t have to watch it on the stove to keep it from boiling too hard, nor do you have to stir it to keep it from burning on the bottom of the pot. Just throw everything in and leave it alone until you’re ready to use the sauce—with plain pasta, in lasagna, even on pizzas (if you like cooked sauce on pizzas)—or preserve it in jars to use later. If you'd like to use fresh plum tomatoes instead of canned, drop them into boiling water for a couple of minutes, then slip the skins off and chop them in the blender as in the recipe. You’ll need to cook fresh tomatoes longer, 8 to 10 hours on the low setting.


Ingredients

40g raw cashews
190g diced peeled potatoes (see Tip)
55g diced carrots (see Tip)
2-3 tbsp nutritional yeast, to taste
2 tbsp refined coconut oil or other neutral-tasting oil, such as grapeseed oil
2 tbsp plus 1½ tsp water
1½ tsp fresh lemon juice, or more to taste
½ tsp plus ⅛ tsp fine sea salt, or to taste
1 medium clove garlic
½ to ¾ tsp white wine vinegar, to taste
Sriracha or other hot sauce (optional)

Preparation

Soak the cashews in a bowl of water overnight or for at least 1 hour. Rinse and drain.

Put the potatoes and carrots in a medium pot and add water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to medium, and simmer uncovered for 10 to 15 minutes, until fork-tender. Drain. (Alternatively, you can steam the veggies.)

Transfer the cashews, potatoes, and carrots to a blender, add the nutritional yeast, coconut oil, water, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) of the salt, garlic, and vinegar and blend until smooth. If using a Vitamix, use the tamper to help it blend. If it’s too thick, you can add another splash of water or oil to help it along. Taste the sauce and add sriracha and more salt, if desired. The sauce will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

Tip: It’s important to dice the potatoes and carrots small before measuring (about 1/2-inch/1 cm pieces) I recommend weighing the potato and carrot for the most accurate measurement.

Make it nut-free: Simply omit the cashews. It won’t be quite as rich, but it still tastes great!

The chicken breasts looked a little bland even though I sprinkled them with a little salt and pepper before I browned them. However, the sauce from the cooked-down olives, onions, and red peppers looked and smelled delicious.

I happened to have these other ingredients in my kitchen, which totally made the meal. It was packed with flavor, and as a bonus, it was pretty healthy.

I would definitely make this meal again, especially now that I have most of the basic ingredients. The week of making all my dinners in the Crock-Pot, despite initially being off to a shaky start, was going well so far.

Easy Tzatziki Sauce

Posted By Savita

Flavorful and easy Tzatziki Sauce, a Greek yogurt and cucumber sauce with traditional tzatziki seasonings - garlic, cumin, black pepper, lemon, and fresh herbs. If you have never tried Tzatziki? then this yogurt sauce is a must try. It needs 15 minutes to make a big batch! Tzatziki is also a healthy, gluten free, carb-free, low-fat, and very refreshing side.

Tzatziki sauce is a versatile dip. Serve it on the side of the grilled meats, or kabobs like I served it with Chicken Souvlaki, or serve it with veggies chips or pita as you see in pictures. All dippers go great with garlicky creamy tzatziki!

In-fact, I have often use Tzatziki as a spread in Greek-Style sandwiches. So next time you make a sandwich for lunch, reach for healthy Tzatziki instead of mayo or mustards. Honestly, with low-fat yogurt, and flavor bong of garlic, herbs, and spices.. I consider Tzatziki Sauce the official healthy summer dip of the year.

Let's not wait and make some Tzatziki [tsä'tseke]!


Greek Falafel platter is my favorite menu item in Greek restaurants but I'm never so happy with a tablespoon serving-size portion of tzatziki. A plate of 4-6 falafels and 1 tablespoon tzatziki! Really? Why do restaurants cut-cost on sauces, the quintessential flavor makers!?

Honestly, I prefer to make a batch at home! Specially, when I make Mediterranean food at home, I never miss the opportunity to mix few cups of tzatziki sauce. Every one loves this sauce, hands down! I never have leftovers! If any, those work great as salad dressing, even as sauce in morning breakfast wraps.

Disclaimer: Tzatziki is called sauce but really, it has the consistency of a creamy dip that you can enjoy with chips. Thank you for understanding my frequent switch between sauce and dip. :)

Once, one of our neighbor brought homemade tzatziki sauce in a community party. It was so delicious and herbaceous that I ate it with spoon. She told me that original tzatziki recipe often has more herbs, and may or may not have lemon juice. Restaurants mostly add dill leaves because that is most common flavor contributor after yogurt, garlic, and cucumber. Since then, I often add some fresh mint (whenever available), dill leaves, and even some chopped parsley in tzatziki.

To make tzatziki sauce, I grate hothouse cucumber on coarse grater (you can also small dice), salt it and leave aside. This helps cucumber loose water which helps keep yogurt dip fresh longer. Once cucumber loose water, then wrap it in muslin cloth and squeeze out as much water as possible. This step is important otherwise tzatziki will get watery very quickly. (Do check my notes if you plan to make Tzatziki ahead of time.)

I then mix Greek thick yogurt with tzatziki seasonings - garlic, lemon juice, salt and black pepper. then fold cucumber and fresh herbs in it. I also add hint of cumin powder for more depth of flavor.

Note: I skip lemon juice or add less if yogurt is very tart.

Tzatziki sauce should always be served chilled which makes it a perfect healthy summer dip. Chilling in refrigerator also brings out flavor of dill and garlic with yogurt. If serving next day, I highly recommend adding salt 15-20 minutes before serving.

HOW TO MAKE GREEK-STYLE YOGURT AT HOME?

In-case you don't have Greek yogurt in hand and still want to make Tzatziki? Try this simple trick to make Greek-style yogurt at home. In-fact, at home you can make Greek Yogurt without thickeners but it does need extra time.

To make Greek yogurt, take regular plain yogurt (not a watery yogurt drink but regular plain yogurt). Add 2 cups of yogurt into a double fold of muslin cloth. Gently grab four corners of the cloth and loosely tie a knot or close with a rubber-band. Leave aside on kitchen sink, in a colander.

If you live in a hot-humid place, place yogurt with colander and a draining bowl in refrigerator.

Leave aside for 2 hours-up-to overnight. In this time, most water from yogurt drains. Left behind is thick cream yogurt. A clean thickener-free Greek-style yogurt it is!


Once seasoned (mainly salted), the yogurt as well as cucumber loose water as sit longer. So if you planning to make Tzatziki ahead of time. I recommend following tips to avoid ending up with a watery dip.

  1. Don't add salt in the Tzatziki until ready to serve.
  2. If using regular cucumber with seeds. Discard the seeds before grating. Seeds will not taste very appealing in Tzatziki and also it will dilute the dip as it sits longer.
  3. Grated cucumber yields more water than diced. So, add small diced cucumber in Tzatziki instead of grated.
  4. Cure the Cucumber - Salt-cure the cucumber. Grate the cucumber, add salt and leave aside for 15-20 minutes. This will make cucumber sweat most water. Squeeze water out then add to yogurt.
  5. For best tasting, long lasting Tzatziki Sauce, follow above tips and always use thick Greek yogurt (without water). Always drain any whey/water sitting on top of yogurt.

When I shared Chicken Souvlaki yesterday.. I wanted to add recipe for tzatziki too but decided to share a separate post. Two reasons: first because chicken souvlaki is dairy free. So I wanted to keep recipe dairy free. Second, tzatziki is not just a side, it is a complete robust sauce of it's own. It can be great option for vegetarian dinner with side of rice and grilled veggie kabobs. So tzatziki recipe gets it's own spot on CDH. :) It is also gluten free when served with gluten free sides/main course.

On a side note, it's good to learn one new word in one day. Like yesterday, we learnt [soov-lah-ki].. Today, [tsä'tseke]. :)

I'm sure you will have some yogurt and cucumber in refrigerator. Grab seasonings from pantry and try refreshing Cucumber Yogurt Tzatziki.

It's a common misconception that when searching for healthy lunch recipes, or just easy and light meals, your options are profoundly limited. Turns out, there are plenty of healthy meals out there that aren't just salads or blandly seasoned fish with steamed vegetables (though those do work, if that's what you like!)

"You might enjoy fish tacos with the tortilla, fish, and vegetables, you're all set in one dish. Or maybe it's a soup and salad kind of day &mdash both great opportunities to pile in plenty of vegetables."

In addition to protein, healthy fats, and some carbohydrates, adding whole grains, fruits, and vegetables to all of your meals can give your light, easy lunch even more health benefits, Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, a plant-based registered dietitian and owner of Plant-Based Eats in Stamford, CT, says. "The protein, healthy fat, and fiber from the whole grain and produce help keep you fuller for longer &mdash and this combination of foods also provides important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants," she tells Woman's Day. For protein, the dietitian suggests eggs, salmon, and beans, just to name a few. Oats, quinoa, and whole-grain or sprouted-grain bread are great carbohydrate options. And as for fruits and veggies? They all have plenty of health benefits, so take your pick. There are so many healthy lunch ideas, but it all come down to balance. Protein, healthy fats, whole grains, vegetables, and fruits are all you need to make these easy, light lunch recipes.
