Vegan Spaghetti Bolognaise

Veganize an old family recipe…

I used to be quite snobby about the idea of adding carrots to Bolognaise. Then, after reading up on it and hearing several different people describe how they make their Bolognaise sauce, I’ve changed my mind. This video from Alpro was the final decider for me. The little old Italian lady describes how you start off your sauce by frying onions, celery and carrots… I am born again! Well, in terms of adding carrots to my Bolognaise, that’s all.

Ingredient – serves 4

  • Olive oil for frying
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 stick celery, sliced
  • 200g (half a pack) soya mince
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 glug of red wine
  • Large pinch of oregano
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Spaghetti (a fistful should be OK for four)
  1. Fry the onion, carrot and celery for a few minutes until soft.
  2. Add the soya mince and fry for a minute or two.
  3. Add the tomatoes, wine and herbs.
  4. Season to taste and cook for 20 mins.
  5. Cook spaghetti as directed on the pack.
  6. Serve spaghetti and Bolognaise with vegan Parmesan.
