  • 500 g of your favorite pasta


  • Bolognese: 
    Let the soya mince soak in the vegetable stock for about 30 minutes, until the stock is completely or almost absorbed. 

    Melt the coconut oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and roast for 3 minutes. Reduce the heat, add the carrots and paprika, and simmer for 5 minutes. 

    Add the Soya mince, salt, cayenne pepper, tumeric, paprika, oregano and tomato paste. Stir everything with other ingredients together. Deglaze with red wine and bring everything to boil. 

    Stir in tomato (pasta) sauce, vegetable stock, sugar, and olive oil and simmer it for about 1 hour. The longer it cooks, the better the taste! Add additional broth if necessary.
    Bring water to boil in a large pot, add salt and cook the pasta until its ready. Drain the pasta and mix it with the homemade Bolognese.

     You can prepare the Bolognese the day before and let it soak in the fridge. This gives is an even better taste the next day!
