Tomato Onion Ragu
Carmelized onions, sweet cherry tomatoes, creamy vegan butter, and nutritional yeast flakes to make a rich ragu. There are many variations for tomato sauce. My preference is that I like them a bit sweet, so I buy smaller tomatoes. Tomato onion makes a great pair, so I figured I’d make a sauce that highlights the two with some added vegan butter and nutritional yeast flakes, which made it creamy and rich.
Large beefsteak tomatoes are not good for making sauces because they hold too much water and no sweet flavor. Using cherry tomatoes is a good option when you don’t have any farm fresh ones of different varieties. Organic, vine ripened, heirloom, green, red, yellow, and purple, are all good. Make sure the color is deep and they are soft but not too soft. Basically you just want them ripe, and a little over that is good too.
Nutritional yeast flakes (sometimes called nooch) are very popular among vegans. It’s what grated cheese is to non vegans. Many of us use these yellow flakes to top our savory dishes and it adds a rich and almost nutty cheese like flavor. They are grown from sugarcane and beets and have been a staple health food for many years. You can find them at health food stores, Whole Foods, online, and most markets. Not to be confused with baking yeast or brewers yeast, these are a condiment.
These flakes pack more than flavor. They are immune boosting, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, loaded with B vitamins, protein, and minerals. Also helps lower cholesterol, nourishes hair, skin, and nails, improves digestion, prevents cancer, improves metabolism, balances blood sugar, promotes brain health, helps build muscle, and increases overall vitality. It is great for those with malnutrition or looking to get a potent nutritional food source. And, it will not lead to candida but will strengthen your body to fight intestinal imbalances.
