Carrot-Free Nomato Sauce

I recently accepted, after about eight attempts, that tomatoes do not agree with me. I already knew that most nomato sauce recipes contained carrots – which I cannot have. So, I set out to attempt making a nomato sauce by altering the need for carrots. I also do not use red wine vinegar and I don’t do very well with eating onions or garlic. I used this recipe from Merit and Fork for my basis. I followed the recipe instructions, but altered the ingredients as follows:
