Vegan Lentil Bolognaise

Lentil Bolognaise is a frugal and delicious meat free meal great for the whole family and very very good for you! If it is part of a weight-loss program, add loads of spices so that your taste-buds don’t get bored!  For the kids, add a bit of curry powder for a bit of a zing without the heat.

If you haven’t cooked with Lentils before, you are in for a treat.  They are nutty in flavour, and really absorb whatever they are cooked in.  I hide them in just about any casserole or tomato-based sauces I make and the kids don’t know – they just think it is a type of pasta (they kind of look like cous-cous when they are cooked).
