Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese: 20 minutes 6 ingredients recipe of delicious and easy vegan dinner. No TVP or tofu, just roasted mushrooms, carrots and tomatoes.
Following Russian Mushroom Caviar, here is an idea how to use it in another way: Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese. It takes 20 minutes (and 6 ingredients!) to make, so I think it’s worth sharing because many of you are looking for quick and delicious vegan dinner ideas. If you are a beginner in cooking, that’s a good recipe to start with, because it’s so easy and at the same time impressive. Delicious food doesn’t have to be difficult to make. Oftentimes beauty lies in simplicity. Vegan Bolognese sauce is great as a make-ahead meal, as it gets even more flavorful on the next day. It’s well-balanced, nutritious and totally addictive. If you are on a vegan diet and you miss spaghetti Bolognese, here you go. I won’t lie, it tastes a bit different as there are mushrooms instead of minced meat but it’s definitely yummy. It also has a rich taste without any meat substitutes like TVP or tofu. You can use any pasta, whole grain or regular. Dig in!
