Vegan Lentil Bolognese

This vegan lentil bolognese is one of our all-time-favourites. It was one of the very first vegan dishes we tried when we transitioned to a vegan diet and has been a favourite ever since. When you’re craving real comfort food, this is the recipe we go for: a flavoursome base, hearty lentils, red onion, carrots and juicy tomatoes. The result is a deliciously rich dish, perfect for speedy weekday dinners or big batches. Just 10 simple ingredients required!
