10 minute lentil bolognese ~ vegan recipe

An easy and cheap vegan recipe to tickle your tastebuds ❤️

Happy Sunday!

Sometimes, when I’m stuck as to what to cook, it’s best to take it back to basics. Here’s a recipe for one variation of vegan bolognese. There are literally endless opportunities and I have made many different types of vegan bolognese style dishes – this is just one version I made the other day. It’s hella cheap and easy and accessible (I hope) 🍝

Enjoy ❤

| Ingredients |

  • 1 red onion
  • 2-3 cloves garlic (or sub for garlic powder)
  • 1 large carrot
  • 3-4 tbsp rice, oat or soy cooking cream/mylk
  • 1 can green lentils
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • Lots of spinach: it will all reduce!
  • Spices to taste: garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, chilli, turmeric, black pepper, salt, Herbes de Provence, basil

| Instructions |

    Start cooking your pasta, if you’re gonna be having some (would recommend)
    Chop the onion, garlic and carrot.
    Fry up onion + garlic in a pan on high heat, then turn down.
    Add in the carrot.
    Add in tomato purée and cooking cream/mylk. Stir frequently so nothing sticks.
    Add in your chopped tomatoes, rinse and drain the lentils, add these too.
    Add in your spices and spinach.
    All done at this point to be honest, but I would recommend letting it all simmer for a little while, stirring lots and making sure you’re happy with the seasonings.
    Serve with pasta and fresh herbs, hot sauce, tahini, nutritional yeast… whatever takes your fancy!

And that’s that! Hope you’ve been inspired to give this a go 🙂

All the love in the world,
