Allow to simmer for 5 minutes before adding the veggie ground back into the pot with a little water and brown sugar.
Reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes covered.
If the sauce looks very watery, remove the lid from the pot and turn up the heat. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes uncovered until the sauce has reduced slightly. Season to taste.
