Product: Simply Organic Italian Herb Spaghetti Sauce Mix

This product is great if you are too tired to make a pasta sauce from scratch. Basically, it is a dry packet mix that is clearly marked as being organic and vegan. Using it is pretty simple - just add water and tomato paste or a tin of crushed tomatoes and you are away. You can also add tofu to it, to bulk it up and put on top of spaghetti. My partner opted for the tinned tomatoes option and paired it with meaty balls, on top of gluten free pasta. It tasted great, with a strong herb flavour. I would suggest, however, adding a pinch of sugar or a few drops of agave to cut some of the sourness from the tomatoes.

I found this product at Manna Wholefoods in Fremantle and have not seen it elsewhere so far. If you can't get to Mana, perhaps look for it in health food shops and organic stores. This company has a few other suitable vegan products available which are listed on thier website.
