What Can I Substitute? Choosing The Best Alternative

I would go for tomato sauce alternatives with similar tomato-like flavors. It’s easier to adjust their consistency than it is to recreate or replicate a natural tomato flavor.

Canned Diced Tomatoes

It’s very easy to find and usually affordable. You can find different sizes, and some are even flavored with herbs and spices.

Tomato Paste

Tomato paste is incorporated into the dish when the onions and garlic are fried. You have to cook it a little for the savory flavor to shine through.

Fresh Tomatoes

Fresh tomatoes work in exactly the same way canned tomatoes do. You can adjust the consistency to your liking, alter the flavor, and play around with different textures.
