Serves: A big pot of sauce!
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup vodka
  • About 3 lbs tomatoes (approximately 8 medium)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Italian seasoning, to taste
  • 1 cup So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Beverage
  1. Heat the oil in a large enameled pot. Toss in the onion. Sauté for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the roughly chopped garlic (It will all be pureed later). Sauté for 2 or 3 minutes more, being sure the garlic does not burn.
  3. Add the vodka and cook off alcohol. The liquid should reduce by more than half.
  4. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, seasoning, to taste. Cover and cook at a simmer for about an hour, checking on it every 20 minutes or so to stir as needed.
  5. Uncover, remove from the heat, and allow it to cool for about 30 minutes.
  6. Whisk in the So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage. Blend with an immersion blender into a puree.
  7. Serve with pasta of your choice.
