  • 1/2 sweet onion (diced)
  • 10 oz baby bella mushrooms (diced)
  • 1/4 cup robust red wine (your favorite) (I used a cabernet)

  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp dried oregano

  3. Add the red wine and saute until no liquid is left, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the crushed tomatoes, remaining vegetable broth (1/2 cup), balsamic vinegar, tamari and dried herbs. Sprinkle salt/pepper all over the top of the sauce and stir to combine.
