Roasted Vegetable Tomato Sauce

Vegan

When purchasing tomato sauce at your local grocer there are number of areas one cannot control. For instance the taste is dependent on the tomatoes used to create the recipe not to mention other ingredients (some of which you may not be able to pronounce!). We cannot estimate the freshness of the  sauce as we don’t know how long it has been sitting there. Why not take the time to create your own tomato sauce? The aroma, taste, color and texture simply cannot be matched.
