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!

    A really lovely vegan version of an Italian classic. Tasty and filling without the bloat.
    Prep Time 10 mins
    Cook Time 20 mins
    Total Time 30 mins
    Servings 2


    • One red onion
    • 2 garlic cloves
    • 1 400 g tin of tomatoes
    • Medium blob of tomato purée
    • 150 ml veg stock
    • 1 teaspoon of balsamic
    • A splash of Tabasco
    • Pinch of dried basil
    • 250 g lentils
    • Salt and pepper


    • To make soften the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
    • Then add all the remaining ingredients except the lentils, season well. Simmer for 15 minutes and add the lentils.
    • Heat the sauce with the lentils in through for a further five minutes and then serve up and enjoy.


    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.
    Serve with whatever accompaniment you like! I opted for courgetti, but you can have it on anything from pasta to a baked sweet potato!

Enjoy, Millie x
