Raw Vegan Tomato Sauce Recipe
As the weather heats up, it becomes more and more tempting to avoid the kitchen. After all, who wants to turn on an oven or have the stove going when the thermometer just keeps rising? But if the urge to order takeout or grab fast food (yikes) strikes, you have a delicious alternative: my Raw Vegan Tomato Sauce.
You might be wondering why this sauce is labeled vegan since nutrition-rich tomatoes are veggies. Well, many long-cooking tomato sauces actually use milk or Parmesan cheese for extra flavor (and also some kind of sweetener!). But this raw version doesn’t use any dairy at all — or even any heat!
That’s right, you can prepare a tomato sauce without any heat or cooking. Get ready to make your new summer favorite …
In a food processor, process all the ingredients, except for the sun-dried tomatoes. Gradually add in sun-dried tomatoes until a thick, smooth paste is formed. Serve mixed in with zoodles topped with fresh basil or use as a dip with our gluten-free garlic breadsticks.
Start by adding all the ingredients except for the sun-dried tomatoes into the food processor and processing. If these don’t scream summer, I don’t know what does. Fresh, juicy tomatoes, a good dose of garlic, a dash of sea salt and green, fragrant basil.
Because this recipe uses so few ingredients, I really recommend you use the best quality you can find. This is the time to hit up the farmer’s market or, even better, your own garden!
Next, slowly add the sun-dried tomatoes to this raw vegan tomato sauce, processing until a smooth, thick paste forms.
This is an easy, no-fuss recipe. It’s ready in five minutes with minimal gadgets, zero prep and literally no cooking. This raw vegan tomato sauce is perfect served over zoodles, as a dip for my gluten-free garlic breadsticks or even as a sauce in this coconut crust pizza. You can’t go wrong!
- 4 cups sundried tomatoes
- 5 cups Roma tomatoes

Your ingredients are too expensive: can you do more affordable recipes?
Hi Karin, feel free to get whatever brand products are in your budget. There are normally different price levels for each ingredient. Blessings.

Is Neem oil essential oil? Can it be eaten? It’s very helpful as anti-inflammatory massage oil.
