Learn how to make a thick, rich tomato oil-free marinara sauce with zero oil or added sugar!
A friend of mine challenged me to go WFPB (whole food, plant-based) for the month of July. That means vegan (of course), no added sweetener, no oil, and no refined grains.
(The WFPB challenge led me to devise this fat-free marinara recipe, and I have many findings from my experimentation. But click “Jump to Recipe” above if you’d like to just get the recipe!)
Normally I eat a well-balanced diet that consists of minimal sweets, moderate and not-egregious amounts of oil, and honestly a lot of white rice – which was easily swapped for brown. So this didn’t feel like much of a stretch for me nutritionally – but cooking-wise it’s a whole different ball game.
