I love marinara sauce – It is such a great go-to weeknight dinner. Pair it with pasta, veggies, or vegan meatballs for a filling, delicious plant-based dinner! Plus, take the oil out and you’ve got yourself a heart-healthy meal!!

One of my favorite things about this gorgeous Oil-Free Marinara Sauce is that is freezes beautifully. Make a double or triple batch, and store in containers for an easy, ready-in-minutes dinner that your whole family will love.

And, one more tip: If you are plant-based, but your family is not, this is a crossover dish that everyone can enjoy. You can have your delicious, oil-free, plant-based sauce, and your family can top with cheese!
