Method:

  2. Heat a large pan with some coconut oil and saute the onion and celery until the onion starts to become translucent.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the pan to brown, adding some water if necessary.
  4. Finally add the garlic and allow to infuse at a reduced heat for 2-3 minutes, before transferring the mixture to a large pot.
  5. Add the tomatoes, puree and stock to the pan and heat for 2-3 minutes before adding in the chopped nuts.
  6. Combine both mixtures in the pot, snap the bay leaf in half and mix it into the sauce.
  7. Bring the mixture to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
