Vegan Bolognese Recipe
Try out my favourite vegan bolognese, I guarantee you, you will not miss the meat.
I cooked this for my family without mentioning it was vegan and only my mum noticed the difference. You can eat the bolognese with spaghetti, zoodles or whatever you like.
Ingredients for the bolognese:
50g red bell peppers
30g red lentils
200g sieved tomatoes
1 teespoon of my homemade vegetable paste
your favorite pasta/zoodles/rice
Step by Step
Peel the onion and braise it lightly with some olive oil.
Peel the carrots, mushrooms and bell peppers and dice them. You can also use a food processor for the vegetables. Add the vegetables to the onion and braise it lightly for about 5 minutes. Then, add the lentils, sieved tomatoes, water and the vegetables paste and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Finally, add come salt and pepper if needed.
In the meantime, you can cook the spaghetti or zoodles.
Top the spaghetti with the bolognese and add some vegan parmesan.
This recipe is inspired by Pamela Reif and her cookbook “You Deserve This”.
