A rich, smooth, salty-sweet sauce that works beautifully over pasta, in sandwiches, or over roasted or grilled summer veggies. Sure, the premise is odd—tomatoes and peanut butter—but really, the taste isn’t. It tastes like a typical raw marinara, but with a salty kick.

Yield: 4


  • 1 1/2 cup chopped, regular or cherry tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce, tamari, or nama shoyu
  • 1 tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice


Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender till very smooth. If you’re working with a regular blender, you may want to try using canned, stewed tomatoes that don’t have many seeds in place of fresh ones.
