Preparation

  1. Start by preparing your veggies – slice mushrooms and chop celery, carrots and leek.
  2. Next, sauté mushrooms – heat up a few tablespoons of water in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the water starts to sizzle add sliced mushrooms and cover. Sauté them over a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Then, throw in chopped leek, carrots and celery. Stir, cover and sauté for another 5 minutes until the veggies are soft. Also, add water if necessary.
  4. Now it’s time to pour in the tomato puree along with ½ cup of water and dried oregano. Stir well, bring to boil and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat.
