vegan Mushroom Bolognese Sauce

One of the most delicious cuisines is probably the Italian one. I think we can all agree on that, can't we? This recipe here tastes almost like the original. But the basis here is not minced meat, but consists of carrots and mushrooms! So this recipe is purely plantbased and even non-vegans don't notice that (almost) at all. Because of the fact that the mushrooms are so small, they really get a very mincemeat-like consistency. And this Bolognese still tastes tomatey, delicious and Italian! Jackpot, right?

I have also used noodles made from black beans from Edamama*. These not only look unusual, but they are vegan, gluten-free, very high in protein and quite tasty. In general, bean and pea pasta is a welcome change in my kitchen, especially in combination with a sauce that doesn't contain any beans or peas. So the protein level in this meal is definitely guaranteed - highly recommended!

You need few ingredients and the recipe is quickly made. To get the parmesan flavor, you can sprinkle yeast flakes over it, for example. These are not only healthy because they contain some B vitamins, but also give the perfect cheesy touch. What I also did here is stew tomatoes in some olive oil. I personally enjoyed that very much! It is not a must, but definitely not only great for the eye.

I would be very happy if you leave me feedback on this recipe. You are welcome to do so in the comments or in a rating! You can also find me here on Instagram and here on Pinterest!
