These juicy little tomatoes are packed full of health benefits, very low in calories and packed full of Vitamin C, beta-cartotene and fiber.
Vitamin C keep the immune system healthy as well as works as an antioxidant, decreasing the chance of chronic diseases. Cherry tomatoes are loaded with insoluble fiber, which supports a regular and healthy bowel system, keeping the digestive tract in tip top conditions.
The fresh basil adds another layer to this simple dish, if you have fresh leaves use it! It makes all the difference and it's so easy to grow, this herb offers wonderful anti bacterial and anti inflammatory properties, and a little goes a long way.
Cherry Tomato Marinara with Zucchini Pasta
3 cups cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup sundried tomato
2 cloves garlic
2 TBS olive oil
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp pepper
handful of fresh basil leaves
1 yellow onion
2 TBS nutritional yeast
2. Dice the onion into small pieces, in a saucepan heat up some olive oil and sauté the onion. Turn the heat to low and cover for around 10 mins so soften and cook the onions
3. Add in the tomato sauce and nutritional yeast and stir for another 5 mins to warm it all up
4. Use a spiraliser and make zucchini noodles. I always take the time to pick out the seed part of the noodles at the end as that is quite watery. Add the marinara sauce on top and any other toppings like fresh basil, more nutritional yeast or parsley!
