Spaghetti Bolognese

 

For the Vegan Bolognese Sauce

Ingredients

  • 100 g of soya granules
  • 1 kg tomatoes
  • 2 medium-sized onions
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1 tsp date paste
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

Soak the soya granules in hot water until the water is absorbed. Strain in a sieve and press to remove excess water. Rinse with fresh water, strain and press again. In a pan, add the soya granules and stir-fry until golden brown. In another pan, fry the garlic and chopped onions over a low flame until they become translucent. In the meantime, chop the tomatoes and put them in a blender/mixer and reduce to a pulp. Add them to the onions along with the herbs and date paste. Cover and cook over a low flame for 20 minutes. Add the soya and cook for 10 minutes longer or until all the water is absorbed and the sauce thickens. Serve with your favorite pasta.
