Happy New Year to Y'all!!!!!

I don’t think I’ve ever made a NY resolution so I’m kind of thinking it’s time :)  I’m (**very) stubborn, therefore, it has always been pretty easy for me to change directions. I don’t have many regrets. I know that’s hard for some people (ones who know me and know my life) to understand but I’ve always said if I die today - my life was pretty kick ass. I had my share of tragedies, pain, huge mistakes, bad choices, and colossal loss which almost took my breath away……. But, through it all, I had my share of happiness, I loved hard, I traveled, I laughed, I’ve experienced stuff which only few ever will. The totality of it all is still pretty darn good. So, my New Year resolution is; no more bad decisions and dump mistakes, no more wasting time, and most of all, letting go of all that still gives me nightmares.  Love, kisses, and peace to y’all!

  • 1 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 2-3 tbsp. vegan butter or vegetable oil

  • 3 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary

  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 500 ml strained / sieved tomatoes

  1. Add the finely chopped mushrooms in a big bowl. Add soy sauce, paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside
  2. In a big pot, heat the vegan butter over medium-high heat. Add the carrots

  4. Cook everything for another 2 minutes, before adding the minced garlic and the mushrooms from the bowl
  5. Let everything cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Stir occasionally
  6. Then, add the dry red wine. Scrap any roasted parts from the bottom of the pot. Stir well and allow the wine to reduce for the next 2-3 minutes
  7. Once there's only a third of the wine left in the pot, add in the tomato paste, dried rosemary, dried oregano, dried basil, dried thyme, a generous pinch of salt, the sieved tomatoes and the water
  8. Give everything a good stir, cover half of the pot with a lid and let the sauce simmer for about 30 minutes on low heat. Stir occasionally
  9. Add a handful of finely chopped parsley to the sauce and season with more salt and pepper if needed
  10. Cover the pot (fully) with a lid and let everything simmer for another 10 minutes
