Health Rating

Ingredients


2 cup Passata (Longo's has a great organic brand)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 clove(s) Garlic (crushed - can use 2, depending on how garlicky you like your sauce)
1 small Red onion (diced - can use white onion)
1 pinch Sea salt (to taste)
1 dash Black pepper (to taste)
1 tsp Oregano, dried (to taste)
1 medium Zucchini (spiralized)
1/2 cup Chickpeas, canned, drained
2 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground)

Instructions


1. Heat enough olive oil to lightly coat your pot. Add onions, garlic, salt and pepper and saute for a minute or 2 until they start to sizzle.

2. Add the tomato sauce + ground flax + chickpeas and lower the heat and slightly cover the pot.

3. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until starts to bubble.

4. While you are cooking the sauce, grab a pan and add some olive oil (for the zucchini noodles)

5. Add the zucchini and toss for a couple of minutes (the longer you cook, the more mushy the zucchini will be).

 

Notes:

Can serve with gluten-free pasta instead: lentil (for more protein), quinoa (for more protein), brown rice.
