Hello there! You may or may not know this, but I’m vegan. But that doesn’t mean that I want to spend half my life cooking. I didn’t suddenly turn into an amazing cook when I decided to go vegan, nor did it make me want to try outlandish recipes that have 67 ingredients, 42 steps, and only a three hour cooking time! I’m guessing there are other vegans out there like me, so I decided to share some actually simple vegan recipes here on my blog. Often, there will be a gluten free or super cheap option as well! Today we are cooking…

spaghetti bolognese

Serves: Two massive bowls, three moderate bowls

What You’ll Need:

– 250 grams spaghetti (I use Barilla cause it’s delicious)

– 1 cup cooked lentils (lentils in a can are cooked, just don’t forget to drain it!)

– 1 jar of tomato pasta sauce (I use Mutti Simply Sugo because it’s amazing)

How You’ll Cook It:

1) Bring a pot of water to the boil and then add spaghetti

2) With about six minutes remaining on the spagehtti, put the lentils and the pasta sauce in a saucepan on low-medium heat

3) When pasta is cooked, strain and serve into bowls

4) Spoon bolognese sauce on top of pasta as required

5) Eat!

Gluten Free Option:

Use your favourite gluten free pasta, or for some extra nutrition try out San Remo Pulse Pasta

Under $5 Option:

Coles/Woolies brand pasta ($1)

Dolmio Pasta Sauce ($2)

Coles/Woolies brand Lentils ($0.75/$0.80)

Total: AUD $3.75

So there you have it! A super simple vegan recipe for spaghetti bolognese. I only discovered this one recently but it’s already a firm favourite. If you try it out, let me know what you think!

All my love,
