Lentil Bolognese

The inclusion of lentils in place of mince provides a great source of protein and fibre. Serve with brown pasta and a side of salad for a balanced meal. NOTE: - Use 2x 400g cans of lentils, rinsed and drained to obtain a total of 480g of lentils. Store leftovers in the freezer for a quick and easy meal.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Finely dice the onion, garlic, celery, and carrots. Finely slice the mushrooms.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or casserole dish over medium heat. Fry the onion until lightly coloured.
  3. Add the celery, carrots, and oregano, and fry until they soften and turn translucent.
  4. Add the mushrooms and garlic. Allow the mushrooms to cook a little, and add the lentils, crushed tomatoes, and half of the basil. Bring it to a boil.
  5. Reduce the heat and let the sauce simmer gently for 15-20 minutes. Season to taste.
  6. Serve the bolognese with cooked wholemeal pasta (log into your food diary separately). Garnish with the remaining chopped basil leaves and sprinkle with the cheese of your choice.
