Happy Pasta Day! A good alternative to real Bolognese is a delicious cooked Lentil Bolognese. It is not only very quick to prepare, but is also perfect for meal prep, for example, because the Bolognese can be kept refrigerated for several days. Or you can freeze it, so it will of course keep much longer.
Not only do the red lentils taste incredibly good, they are also very high in protein, which makes them even more attractive, I think. This makes them an ideal basis for a training day (or for a lazy Sunday sofa day, whatever).
It does not taste like a classic Italian Bolognese. But the fact is: If you like bolognese and pasta and prefer a vegan variant, you will like it!
One advantage is definitely that it needs few ingredients, but rather the usual "suspicious" ones are used, at least according to my kitchen they are almost always available. The vegetables can also be varied, depending on what you prefer to have inside or at home. But for me, the combination of carrots, peppers and lentils is definitely the best.
I hope you like the recipe. Feel free to leave me a review, a comment and/or link me to Instagram.
