Chop remaining veggies while onions saute. When onions are slightly translucent, add chopped celery, carrots, and beets to onions.
Once all veggies are soft, add pumpkin puree, diced garlic, bone broth, olives, sea salt, dulse flakes, and Primal Palate spice blend. Cook about 10 minutes.
Add lemon juice, basil leaves and nutritional yeast (optional), and either blend with an immersion blender in the sauce pan, or transfer to a blender or food processor. Pulse until the texture is similar to marinara sauce. I like my sauce to be a little bit thicker, but you can add more bone broth or spring water to your sauce to thin it out if you prefer.
