Vegan Bolongnese Sauce


This pasta sauce is a smash hit at our house. Non vegan husband loves how flavorful it is. Kids ask for seconds and that makes me happy.

Vegan Bolongnese Sauce

Ingredients 2 cups cooked lentils (I cooked mine in vegetable stock) 1/2 cup carrot, peeled and finely chopped 1 white onion, chopped 2 tbsp vegetable oil 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 bell pepper, red 1 cup marinara sauce Instructions In a large skillet, add in oil and onion. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes or until lightly caramelized. Stirring occasionally.

Remove onions for skillet and place into a bowl for later use.

In the same skillet, add in the chopped pepper and carrots. Adding in extra oil if needed. Cook on medium heat until the carrots have softened. Remove from heat.

In another large skillet add in the cooked lentils, garlic powder and marinara sauce. Cook on high heat until the sauce has thicken into the beans and it no longer looks liquidity. Stir often and keep a close eye on it, so it doesn't burn and stick to the pan. Add salt if needed. Remove from heat once thickened.

Once the marinara sauce has thickened with the lentils you can now mix in the peppers, carrots, and caramelized onions. Mix well add salt and pepper to taste if needed. Serve over pasta and enjoy.
