Lentil Bolognese

I love this lentil bolognese!! It’s so easy to throw together and is healthy beyond belief. I always come to this recipe when I’m feeling a little down or under the weather, as it’s like a big bowl of warm lentilly hugs!

    Ingredients
    1. One red onion
    2. 2 garlic cloves
    3. 1 400g tin of tomatoes
    4. Medium blob of tomato purée
    5. 150ml veg stock
    6. 1 teaspoon of balsamic
    7. A splash of Tabasco
    8. Pinch of dried basil
    9. 250 g lentils
    10. Salt and pepper
    Instructions
    1. To make soften the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
    2. Then add all the remaining ingredients except the lentils, season well. Simmer for 15 minutes and add the lentils.
    3. Heat the sauce with the lentils in through for a further five minutes and then serve up and enjoy.
    Notes
    1. I added half a red pepper, some celery and some tomatoes to bulk it out, but it works great with any vegetable to be honest.
    2. Serve with whatever accompaniment you like! I opted for courgetti, but you can have it on anything from pasta to a baked sweet potato!
