Pasta with warm tomato sauce seems like it would be a no no for a person on the Gerson Therapy/Diet.
However, I have been craving pasta lately, so I decided to make my own Gerson-approved herb tomato sauce, served with broccoli slaw “pasta.” If you have the time, you could easily make vege pasta from zucchini, but I bought organic broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s to made things faster. I’m hungry!
Even if you’re not on the Gerson Diet, this is a very healthy homemade tomato sauce, made from scratch. Skip all of the preservatives in store-bought jars and cans, and easily make your own.
Gerson-Approved Herb Tomato Sauce
- 2 lbs Tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 sweet pepper, chopped
- 1/2 Large Onion, chopped
- 3 Cloves of Garlic (to taste), minced
- Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tsp dried or fresh sage
- 1 tsp dried or fresh rosemary
- 1 tsp dried or fresh thyme
Add all ingredients to a deep skillet, and let simmer at least 30 minutes. The longer you simmer, the thicker and richer it will get.
Warm up the broccoli slaw in a skillet, about 5 minutes depending on how “al dente” you want it. Make sure to keep stirring the slaw, or it will burn. Do not add oil if you are on the Gerson diet. It’s not needed anyway.
Add the warm tomato sauce to the broccoli slaw. I added a pinch of dried garlic granules to the top for a zesty kick of flavor. Enjoy!
