Tip
Veggie crumbles add protein and a meat-like texture to this sauce. Mum’s the word—no one will know this is a meatless sauce.
The sauce can be kept warm on Low heat setting up to 2 hours; stir occasionally. Keep the sauce in the slow cooker on nights when your family is eating at different times.
