Stealth Health Spaghetti Sauce

About the only way to get vegetables into Ms 9 is by stealth. A food processor is invaluable here. I can add just about any vegetable to a spaghetti sauce so long as it isn't green...

1 can crushed tomatoes
1 can butter beans, drained
1 onion, diced
1 carrot, grated
2 potatoes, cooked and diced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup corn kernels
4 chicken thigh fillets, diced

Saute onion and carrot until onion is cooked. Add garlic and saute for a further minute. Put crushed tomatoes, butter beans, potatoes, onion, carrot and garlic into the bowl of a food processor. Add water if it seems too thick, and process until very smooth.

Brown chicken in the same pan. Pour over sauce and add diced tomatoes and corn kernels. Reduce until the sauce is nice and thick and the chicken is cooked through.
