  • Add the tomato puree and saute for a few minutes. Then add the chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock and stir to combine. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

You can substitute the mushrooms for tandoori chicken or beef if you eat meat. Allow the meat to sit in the marinade and follow the same steps grilling the meat until fully cooked.
