Magical Sauce

Magical Sauce

As parents we are always worrying about the kids not eating enough veg. This versatile sauce is perfect to give the kids some fun but healthy food. You can use it on top of pizza, for pasta, as a base for curry or chilli. Just about anything and its pretty good for adults too 😉 I like to make it up thick as I can add stock or water to thin it, as per recipe. The amounts below are for a batch to divide and freeze, but you can adjust as needed.

*tip* freeze in ikea freezer bags flat and you can stack them up to be more efficient with space.  you can also add chilli flakes when you add the dried herbs if you like it hot !
