  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, oregano, and thyme. Simmer until tomatoes are soft, about 10 minutes. Add baking soda and stir. Simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in kefir.
