Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - TMT Sauce

The inspiration for this recipe came from the May/June 2010 issue of Clean Eating Magazine. The flavors were good, but the nutritional profile and texture weren't what I wanted... I tweaked and tweaked until this TMT Sauce was given a round of thumbs-up. High protein, and packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, this training-friendly sauce is a meal by itself!

Pair it with Quinoa or Whole Wheat pasta, a baked potato, jasmine or brown rice... it's versatile and incredibly filling!
