Recipe: Homemade spaghetti Bolognese

With all the wonderful meat substitutes around today, recreating a vegan spaghetti Bolognese is not difficult and also much healthier. Read on for the perfect Bolognese recipe!

The authentic spaghetti Bolognese consists of a tomato sauce with carrot and celery, but I am not a huge fan of these vegetables. I feel like I still need to learn to eat them. While I’m learning, I’m mostly avoiding them :-). I also avoid meat and dairy, so when I make spaghetti Bolognese I make a dairy-free, meat-free, celery- and carrot-free Bolognese. Sounds so dull, but it’s delicious! My carnivore boyfriend loves this dish, and frequently begs me to make it. Feel free to add carrot and celery if you’re not a stubborn child like me. Besides omitting the celery and carrot, I’ve tried to stay true to the original Bolognese recipe. Recipe below!

Instructions
  1. Cook the spaghetti. Set aside.
  2. Chop the garlic, onion and sweet pepper.
  3. Put a large wok or pan on the stove (medium heat) with some olive oil. Add the garlic, onion and pepper. Sauté until soft.
  4. Add the vegan meat and cook for a few minutes.
  5. Add the tomato paste and cook for a few more minutes.
  6. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar or red wine and cook until it evaporates.
  7. Add the strained tomatoes with the Italian seasoning, bay leaves and agave syrup. Let the sauce cook for a few minutes so the flavours are released into the sauce.
  8. Add the fresh basil just before you serve the sauce. Just stir through.
  9. Put some spaghetti on a plate and pour some Bolognese sauce over it. Serve with some arugula on top and nutritional yeast as a Parmesan substitute. The ultimate comfort food!
