I have a recipe that includes two 6 ounce cans of tomato paste along with one 8 ounce can of tomato sauce. Can tomato paste and/or tomato sauce count towards my daily vegetable requirement?

Yes! Both tomato paste and tomato sauce count towards your vegetable goals for the day.  This is fortunate because they can be used as the base for many great pasta and vegetable dishes!  Goals will vary due to age, gender and activity level, so check out our website to determine your personal fruit and vegetable goals—then get creative with your sauces!!  Be sure to look for recipe tips and suggestions right here on our website.

  1. This is a great question and the answer is encouraging. What are some other ideas of what counts as a veggie serving (other than the traditional fresh and frozen)?
