Vegan Bolognese Recipe

Vegan Bolognese
Servings: 6

Cooking vegan for my favorite meat eater is quite an enormous challenge for me sometimes. I noticed that Lauren had ordered spaghetti bolognese the last couple times we were in Italian restaurants. This was my vegan take on an old Italian favorite, and she thought it was great! I decided to use textured vegetable protein (tvp) because it absorbs the flavors of whatever you rehydrate it with.

  9. Let simmer for a minute or two.

  10. Next add your can of tomato paste, mix well and cook for a minute or two before adding the large can of crushed tomatoes.
