When Natalia Fritz accidentally combined her homemade sweet potato puree with a simmering pot of marinara, she didn’t panic. On the contrary, she introduced her hungry family to Natalia’s Sweet Potato Tomato Sauce, which became a favorite.
“After that pivotal dinner meal, it wasn’t long until I was cooking up batches of my sauce for lasagna, chicken Parmesan, homemade pizza and as a dip for meatballs and chicken fingers. Each dish was a bigger hit than the last,” she writes on her website. “I bought myself a pressure canner and began making it and jarring it for friends and their families.”
Now available online and at select North Bay grocers, it’s gluten free, low fat (no sugar added), has no artificial ingredients and contains 75 percent vegetables (more than 50 percent sweet potato). We used it to season stuffed bell peppers and as a base for pepper pot soup. The sweet potato flavor adds a deliciously unexpected, earthy twist to anything typically made with tomato sauce or paste.
