Vegan Spag Bol

Vegan Spag Bol

Spag bol is a classic, no doubt… My own tried and tested beef bolognese recipe is famous (amongst my kids’ friends… ha.. my claim to fame!!). Still, they request it all the time, and my own 3 could eat it every day, oblivious to the fact it has courgettes, mushrooms, peppers, carrots, celery and onions in it.  

Those that follow my stories on IG know bolognese is a regular batch cook every couple of months; I always have it stashed in the freezer when I need a quick and healthy home-cooked meal… for pasta, in a wrap, in a taco, with mash… the list goes on.  

I know a ton of you have DM’d me asking for my bolognese recipe, and I promise it’ll be up soon, but before we talk beef, I have to tell you about this comparable meat alternative for bolognese.  This was my second time using @meatlessfarm mince, and I’m shocked yet again at the taste and texture… a game-changer, guys.. you need to give this one a try!
