I accidently bought a bottle of sauce for bolognese recently and as it's a pretty pricey, imported brand I don't want it to go to waste. And spaghetti bolognese was one red meat dish I was sad to give up when I became a vegetarian.

So does anyone have any good recipes to make bolognese vegetarian style?

You can use that dehaydrated protein stuff but I find it very bleaugh myself. When I'm making a bolognesey-type of thing I usually just use red lentil cooked in a nap sauce. Just put them in with the sauce, add some water and cook away until they are done. I find they are filling and have a nice oozey consistency over spaghetti.

if youve got bottled sauce then you really dont need much of a recipe. just fry some onion and garlic, bung in some tvp mince [i always soak the tvp first and then wash and drain several times over to get rid of the soy taste] and then i add some artificial beef stock [not necessary but a preference of mine] and then fry it for a while. add the sauce to it and simmer for a short while on low heat and then serve with the spag. depending on your tastebuds you might need to jazz up the sauce by adding more herbs, salt etc at the start after youve cooked the onion and garlic.

I actually make it with the Morningstar Farms fake ground beef. Saute a chopped onion, a little extre garlic ans ome italian seasoning, then I add in the Morningstar stuff and brown it. Then I add the tomato sauce and a little cooking sherry. I have made it for omni friends and they swore that it had real beef in it!!

This is really the best way to go. Those crumbles can make great tacos, chili, etc too.

TVP- Textured vegetable protein. It kind of soaks up the flavor of whatever you make it with.



Here's another recipe. This one uses tempeh.

Here's two that I make. The first is a mushroom Bolognese with spaghetti and the second is a Bolognese with seitan (or ground crumbles) that I used to make Lasagna Bolognese. Both are very good.

Oh yum.



I made some last night cos I felt like pasta and used red lentils and added some veggie stock (had no beef) and dried herbs and it was nice but I'm sure I could use something with more texture and flavour...

I'd recomend Quorn Mince, it tastes gorgeous! Also get some dolmio bolonase sauce, most of the dolmino range is veggie friendly, the mushroom one is gorgeous!
