Untomato sauce- The sunshine in my life (Tomato free, nightshade free, citrus free, gluten free, dairy free, egg free)

Due to my allergies to tomatos, I found this recipe to make fake tomato sauce- I love it- my husband likes it, and says it tastes just like marinara sauce...This sauce truly brightened my day!
And here is the Un-tomato Sauce:
1 1-pound can beets, drained (or one pound fresh)
2 1-pound cans carrots, drained
2 Tbls. Ume Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar
1 C. Water
1 T. salt
2-3 T. Oregano
1.5 T. Garlic powder
2-3 T. Basil
2 t. sugar
Puree completely in food processor or blender, and place in the fridge and let flavors blend for several hours

Beets...brilliant! The color is perfect. If you don't mind I am going to add a link to this recipe as sort of a P.S. on my plum ketchup recipe. Also I wanted to ask if I may add you to my blogroll. You really have some great stuff here!

please- feel free too! I love reading your blog! I cant wait to try somer of your recipes- they sound so good. How did you learn to plate your food so nicely?

That literally made me laugh out loud. The more you look at my blog the more you will notice than some of the pictures are very bland and amaturish...I took those, and some of them are "plated" and 15 yr old daughter took those. She is all about gourmet food and presentation whereas I'm more of a get a warm meal on the table kind of person. :)

Wow! I can't believe how that turned out. I eyeballed everything and added a couple pieces of roasted red pepper and some red wine, and cut back on the water. I can't wait to get dinner together.
