Vegan Hardy Bolognese Sauce With Tons of Hidden Veggies
This vegan bolognese sauce is so hardy and delicious you certainly won’t miss the meat!
I like to challenge myself to sneak as many veggies into a dish as possible. This vegan bolognese sauce might be my biggest plant-based success yet.
By food processing onions, peppers and spinach and adding it to your favourite pasta sauce, you’re left with a rich, thick and hardy plant-based dish that resembles a traditional bolognese.
Throw in some cherry tomatoes, basil and garlic and voila — the best da*n bolognese (EVEN WITHOUT THE MEAT) you’ve ever had (and you’ll be eating it in 30 minutes or less!)
One of the keys to making this recipe delicious is selecting a really good, high quality pasta sauce. If you have a favourite, use it! One thing to be mindful of when selecting pasta sauce is the sugar content. If it contains sugar in the first three ingredients, it’s a no in my books. If you’re stuck, my go-to is Victoria’s White Linen Marinara. It’s non-GMO verified, gluten free and has a very ‘fresh’ homemade taste.
For pasta, I’d suggest whole wheat or brown rice pasta. We’ve been having brown rice pasta lately because my boyfriend suspects he has a gluten allergy but honestly whole wheat is my forever fav.
Finish this dish off with my easy three ingredient vegan parmesan cheese and man we’ve got a real winner on our hands!
