This is a simple but delicious marinara sauce. You may feel free to add a protein when adding
your tomatoes. If you choose to solely plant-based with the addition of chick peas, eggplant or
zucchini, your cook time may increase only slightly or until the vegetables are tender. However,
if you add ground turkey or beef, allow your sauce to cook for an additional 10-15 minutes to be
sure everything is thoroughly cooked. Taste to adjust spices, salt and/or sweetness. Serve this
with a bit of grated cheese or our Mermaid Parmesan and fresh basil!

2 T. Olive Oil
4-5 oz. Diced Onion
3 T. Mediterranean Mermaid
1 – 28oz. can Diced Tomato or Tomato Sauce
1 T. Maple Syrup or sweetener of your choice
½ tsp. Salt

Place your saucepan over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, add your olive oil, onions
and stir for 3-4 minutes or until your onions are slightly translucent. Next, add your
Mediterranean Mermaid and stir it into the onions for about 20 seconds to allow the moist
heat to bring the spices back to life. Add your tomatoes and gently stir the ingredients
together. Turn the heat down to medium, cover and allow the sauce to simmer for 15-20
minutes. If you prefer a thicker sauce, simmer it uncovered. Lastly, add the salt and
maple syrup, give it a final stir, and Enjoy!
