Marinara Sauce Can Quietly Sabotage Your Keto Efforts, So Try This Low-Carb Recipe
Traditional pasta may be off limits on the low-carb keto diet, but there are still lots of ways you’ll want to use marinara, from casseroles to zoodles to cauliflower pizza. The trouble is, store-bought marinara sauce – like barbecue sauce and salad dressing – can be packed with refined sugars. Fortunately, with this homemade marinara, you won’t have to worry about being kicked out of ketosis.
The key to a perfect marinara is tons of herbs. The classic trifecta is oregano, basil, and parsley. If you use fresh herbs, even better! They have a stronger flavor that takes the sauce to another level. If you prefer a little note of sweetness, try adding your favorite low-carb sweetener into the mix.
Once you have all the ingredients you need, just toss them into a blender and purée on high until creamy. The whole process takes about five minutes.
Swap the dried herbs for fresh herbs to enhance the flavor.
