VEGAN SERVING & COOKING SUGGESTIONS
– Extraordinary as chunky salsa or as a bruschetta topping!
– A hearty tomato sauce for veggie lasagna
– First-rate alternative to marinara sauce in your favorite pasta dishes
– Stir into white or brown rice for Southern “red rice”

SEAFOOD COOKING SUGGESTIONS
Steam or sauté shrimp, scallops, crab legs or mussels, then add this piquant sauce and briefly simmer as a delightful finishing sauce!
We suggest you first sauté the seafood OR use pre-cooked cocktail shrimp for less simmering time. (Naturally, the longer you simmer anything in the sauce, the more the veggies dissolve.)
POULTRY COOKING SUGGESTIONS
– For a low-fat option, use boneless poultry
– Sauté chicken or turkey, then simmer in this distinctive sauce
– Alternately, simmer fresh poultry in the fat-free sauce until done to your liking.
MEAT COOKING SUGGESTIONS
– Add this incredible tomato sauce to your meatloaf mixture as well as on top; ditto for meatballs!
– Brown a pot roast then braise this fabulous, fresh tomato sauce in the oven, on the stove or in slow-cooker
