Number of Servings: 8


    1. 2 Tbs of Olive oil
    2. 100 grams of Soya granules/mince
    3. 2 onions, chopped
    4. 4 Cloves of Garlic, chopped.
    5. Grated rind and juice of 1 orange or mandarin. (depending on which you like)
    6. 2 stalks Celery, chopped (including leaves if there are any)
    7. 2 grated carrots
    8. 6 coarsely chopped Black or green olives
    9. 1 liter box of chopped tomatoes or 3 cans.
    10. 1 Tbs of tomato paste (or 50 grams - for the lovely depth of flavor it adds)
    11. salt to taste (I like Himalyan sea salt for the mineral content)
    12. Black pepper to taste
    13. 1 tsp Rosemary (dried or fresh or to taste)
    14. 1 tsp Oregano (dried or fresh or to taste)

This is a favorite sauce, developed over the years, and can be used in so many ways. On a baked potato, rice, polenta, pasta, lasagna, moussaka, toast, excellent in Sloppy Joe's and can easily be adjusted to a delicious chilli sauce by the addition of some Jalapenos, one of the many excellently flavoured chilli peppers or Harissa and your choice in bean. What makes this sauce so tasty is to leave it for several hours cooking over a low temperature to mature and get a really good deep flavor. It's a forgiving sauce and can be adjusted to everyone's personal preference. It freezes very well with no loss of flavor or texture.


1. Soak Soya mince in boiling water for 15 mins (just covered, like with couscous) and set aside.
2. Heat olive oil in large frying pan/pot and saute onions, garlic, celery, grated carrots, olives and orange rind until soft /lightly browned
3. Add tomatoes. Cook for 10 minutes.
4. Add soya mince, herbs, spices and other flavorings.
5. Add red wine
6. Stir thoroughly and cover. Turn down heat to low and leave this sauce to cook for 2 to 3 hours. If it becomes a little dry add some veggie stock or water. If you dilute the sauce check the flavor. Taste after an hour and adjust the seasoning.
