This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

A super easy, yet super simple pasta sauce that you can make in large batches. It is slow cooked to help develop a delicious flavour in the oven, packed with added roasted onion and garlic. Why not use it as a pizza sauce too?

  3. Peel the onion, slice it in half and add it to the baking tray

  4. Peel the garlic cloves and add them to the baking tray whole

  5. Drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper

  6. Place the baking tray in the oven and slow roast for 3-4 hours

  7. Take the baking tray out of the oven and remove any liquid excess from roasting

  8. Allow to cool, then using the large jug of your NINJA KITCHEN SYSTEM, pour in all of the tomatoes, onion, garlic and fresh basil – blitz to create the creamy tomato sauce (adjust seasoning if needed)

  9. Pour directly on to cooked pasta, sprinkle with the fresh parsley or basil and serve

I have always had an interest for the healthy food industry, thehealthybeard started completely out of the blue – I started posting pictures of the breakfasts and desserts that I would make, within weeks my Instagram began to grow and people would ask me for the recipes. In 2014 I decided to quit eating animal based products and follow a plant-based diet and never looked back! My recipes focus on quick and easy plant-based dishes that are accessible to people. I love to inspire and encourage others to follow a healthy lifestyle. You can keep up to date with my recipes via my Blog and Instagram.
