Thermomix – Vegetable Pasta Sauce



1 brown onion

2 garlic cloves

1 T olive oil

1 carrot roughly chopped

150g pumpkin, peeled and roughly chopped

2 zucchini, roughly chopped

100g button mushrooms

4 tomatoes quartered

1 T tomato paste

400g tin tomatoes

1 tsp brown sugar

3 sprigs fresh basil or oregano (leaves only)



Place onion and garlic into mixing bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 7.  Scrape down sides of bowl.

Add oil and saute 2 min/100C/speed 2.

Add carrot, pumpkin, zucchini, mushrooms and tomatoes and chop  5 sec/speed 7.  Scrape down sides of bowl and chop a further 5 sec/speed 7.

Add tomato paste, tinned tomatoes and sugar and cook 15 min/100C/speed 2 with MC removed and TM basket on mixing bowl lid.  Scrape down sides of bowl.

Add herbs, replace MC, and blend 1 min/speed 7, gradually increasing speed from 1 to 7.

Freeze or refrigerate until required.



Aimed at kids, but adults love it too. So quick and easy and full of vegetables… this tastes like a good napoli pasta sauce.  Use it as a pasta sauce, or even on your home-made pizzas.  I keep a stash in the freezer at all times for those nights I run out of time to cook.
