Vegan Lentil Bolognese

Submitted by: MISSYMEOW

Introduction

This Bolognese tastes very much like the traditional version. It has a lovely 'meaty' texture, just without the meat. Filling and very healthy. This Bolognese tastes very much like the traditional version. It has a lovely 'meaty' texture, just without the meat. Filling and very healthy.

  • Very good recipe. I tried it this weekend and the only tweaking I did was that I added 4tbs of sugar to sweeten the sauce during the tomoato pase phase and I added 1 cup of water and let it reduce. RAVE REVIEWS from friends and family. - 9/19/11
