The “Secret” Mother Sauce

A 10-minute tomato sauce that you can add to ground beef or vegan crumble for a quick Bolognese, or olives, capers, garlic and parsley for puttanesca.


  • 2 tbsp coconut or grapeseed oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced small
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 can (28oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 6 cups zucchini noodles
  • ½ cup olives, sliced
  • ¼ cup capers
  • ½ cup parsley, chopped
  • Parmesan cheese, to garnish


In a pot over medium heat, add the coconut oil, onions, garlic, salt and pepper.

Sauté until the onions are translucent and soft. Add the tomatoes and mustard and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes and then remove from heat.

In a hot frying pan, add the coconut oil and the zucchini noodles. Sauté briefly, and then add the tomato sauce, olives and capers. Toss to combine.

Garnish with parsley and serve. Top with parmesan if desired.
