Fuhrman's Almond Tomato Sauce
Friday, September 06, 2013
I am not fond of garlic so I probably won't use it.
Fuhrman plan has no meat so the almonds give fat and protein.
Almond Tomato Sauce
Serves: 4 Preparation Time: 10 minutes
1 whole garlic bulb
1/2 cup raw almonds or 1/4 cup raw almond butter
3 medium tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roast garlic bulb for 35 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the bulb, until the individual cloves are soft and easy to squeeze. Allow to cool and squeeze the roasted garlic from the skins.
Process roasted garlic, almonds and tomatoes in a food processor or high powered blender until finely ground. Add remaining ingredients except basil and continue to process until smooth. Add basil and pulse until mixed in.
Serve over steamed or water sauteed vegetables. Use as a topping for a mixture of roasted red pepper and steamed snow peas.
