Easy Vegan Bolognese is simple, healthy and really tasty! It is such an easy recipe to make and packed with nutrients it is definitely worth trying.
Add the oil to a pan over medium heat. Add the diced onions, carrot, celery, garlic and tomato puree and allow to soften for 10 minutes
Add the tinned tomatoes, dried herbs, mustard powder, salt, pepper, Bouillon powder and bay leaves. Stir to mix through completely
Add 200ml of water and stir through. Leave to cook partially covered with a lid for 30 mins on a low heat, stirring occasionally
Drain and rinse the lentils in cold water before adding them to the pan
Add another 100ml water before partially covering with a lid and leaving to cook on a low heat for another hour. Stir every so often and add a little more water if needed
When using tinned tomatoes, I like to fill the empty tin with water to add to the recipe. It catches the last of the tomato juice.
If at any point it starts looking too dry, add a splash more water.
If it looks too watery towards the end of the cooking time, remove the lid and turn up the heat slightly.
