Lentil Bolognese

Bolognese or Bolognaise?! same same right?!


This vegetarian gluten free recipe is just so good, even my meat eaters have been converted. 

The red split lentils probably are the only ones that won’t really work with this.

Here is what your going to need:

1 medium onion finely diced

3 garlic cloves minced

1 tbsp mixed dry herbs

1 tbsp tomato paste

2 cups diced tomatoes or 1.5 cans of diced toms

2 large carrots finely diced

2 celery stalks finely diced up

2 cups cooked lentils ( anything but the red ones – they just mush up!)


Heat oil in a med/ large pot and add garlic onions and herbs and sweat off.

Add in your tomato paste and 1/2 of the diced tomatoes and cook out for a few mins

Add in your carrots and celery cook out for a bit longer then add in your lentils followed by the rest of the tomato mix.

Season with salt and pepper then cook out for around 10 mins until the veggies are cooked through.

before serving add in some fresh chopped parsley.

Serve with spaghetti!

hope you enjoy, let me know any questions! 

take care, stay healthy
