Sneaky Veg Sauce

For my second recipe post of my series I thought I would share my sneaky veg sauce.

I am doubly delighted that this post is also a review – of my beloved Joseph Joseph! I tweeted my blogging challenge at them because some of their products are in my 5 favourite kitchen things, and to my surprise I got an email from them offering to send me something for review! EXCITED FACE!

So this recipe is brought to you with some super sexy sharp knives and funky chopping boards.

Knives (1)

Look how pretty they are! There is a separate board – and knife – for fish, cooked food, meat and for veg. I’d forgotten how much easier it is to cook with super sharp knives. They have lovely clever features like grooves to catch juices, and rubber grips on the back to prevent slipping. And did I say sharp? *heart shaped eyes*

Anyway! On to the recipe! If you have a child who eyes anything remotely healthy like you’ve served up fried slugs then this usually works as a way of getting some good stuff into them. The bonus of this is that it is also a delicious meal for grown ups at the same time.sauce

Sneaky Veg Sauce
This is a slimming world and family friendly recipe for tomato sauce (or if you are a grown up it's an oven baked ratatouille!) You can put pretty much any veg you desire into it, the more the tastier. This is the basic, most sneaky version. You will need a blender!

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees, and get your ingredients together.
  2. Prep your veg as per ingredients list and spread over a sprayed baking tray.
  3. Give the veg a good shake, and pop in the oven. Check on it after 10 and 20 minutes and keep shaking so it doesn't stick or get burnt.
  4. Once all the veg is looking deliciously golden, tip the tomatoes on top, and mix well. If you have any, some fresh basil mixed through is a really tasty addition. Bake the mix for another 10 minutes.
  5. While that is baking, chop your chorizo and dry fry it. Put the pasta on to cook.
  6. Once the veg sauce is baked, take out a portion for the littles and pop it in the blender (or food processor, or use a hand blender - just watch out for splats!)
  7. Mix your sauce with the chorizo and pasta, and use the separate whizzed portion for your anti-veg small people. Enjoy!

  1. This looks like something fairly simple that I could try out. I’m trying to expand the number of meals that I’m capable of cooking. Also, those knives sound great!

  2. Oh look at your amazing Joseph Joseph chopping boards and knives, obviously I am in awe of your sneaky veg sauce but your Joseph Joseph chopping boards and knives are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I used to have their chopping boards but they got left behind when we moved to Jersey *sobs* I am going now to swoon over their stuff and to buy some chorizo -love that stuff!

  3. I love the idea of this with the veggies and chorizo! Who doesn’t love a good pasta recipe? I certainly do especially with spaghetti. Haven’t quite gotten my toddler to eat pasta yet but once he does I will definitely try this. #TribalLove

  4. Fab – well done on your pitch! Joseph Joseph stuff is really lovely. I’ve had my eye on those chopping boards for quite some time! The sauce sounds lovely too! Thanks for sharing on #fortheloveofBLOG x

  5. I started reading this expecting it to be a vegetarian sauce and then i spotted my husbands favourite ingredient – chorizo! n fact he was looking over my shoulder and said ‘that looks nice’. I think my kids will love this as they are also chorizo lovers #foodiefriday

  6. Ooooooooooo that looks so yummy I have a big kid who is just as bad as the small ones when it comes to eating his veg going to give this one a go sounds yummy
