Undercover sauce
This 'special sauce' is full of nutritional goodness and the kids will be completely unaware!
This is a sauce that disguises all the things your kids don't want to eat and it looks just like good old ‘All Gold’.


500g fresh tomatoes
4 carrots
½ onion
½ clove of garlic
1 t sugar

Chop the carrot and onion as small as you can and fry in a pan with the chopped garlic, until soft.

Cut the tomatoes roughly and place in the pan.
Tomatoes don’t lose their nutritional value on cooking, so let this simmer for a while, to break down all the ‘squishy, yucky’ bits.

Add the sugar after 10 minutes or so and let it go for about 20 minutes, the thicker it is, the more it resembles ‘All Gold’.

Add a splash of water if it gets dry.

Place straight into a blender and blend until very smooth. Blend when hot. You can freeze this and use when you need it. Great for bolognaise, on top of any pasta, eggs, with fish fingers etc.

There are loads of recipes that you can try and persuade your kiddies to eat with this fantastic sauce on it. Hey, you may enjoy it too!

Drink in the goodness
