Recipe for Vegan Pasta Sauce.

Does anyone have really yummy recipe for a vegan pasta sauce, along the lines of marinara (loosely speaking), suitable as a stand-alone sauce for pasta, or for using in bolognaise (with a meat substitute), chili sin carne, lasagna, etc?

The problem is that the person this is to be made for is allergic to citric acid so no tomatoes or bell peppers or lemon juice, etc.

In the case of citric acid allergy does anyone know if cider vinegar or white wine vinegar is a reasonable substitute? I've emailed Aspalls but not received a reply

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

I found this page from someone who says she has an allergy to citric acid and has compiled a list of foods that contain it and another of recipes she uses. One is for pizza sauce and includes a red bell pepper. Use at your own discretion.

She says wine contains citric acid as a byproduct of fermentation. I imagine that applies to vinegars as well.
