Have you ever heard of nomato sauce? It is great! Btw, I know your recipe calls for whole tomatoes. But this is the best I could think of.
Clean, peel, slice and dice all vegetables except the bay leaf.
Put everything in a covered pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer until veggies are soft.
Take out the bay leaf, blend well till smooth and use as you would tomato sauce, spicing appropriately for the dish you're using it in.
