Thick and hearty lentil ‘bolognese’ sauce

Hey everyone!

This is just going to be a quick little post, to share my newest recipe that I’ve made (and eaten) quite a bit recently. It’s a lentil ‘bolognese’ sauce filled with veggies in a super flavourful tomato sauce and with the addition of nutrient-rich lentils. The lentils makes the dish filling, hearty and adds a good amount of plant-based protein.

This sauce is PERFECT when combined with a steaming bowl of pasta (I loooove brown rice fusilli), a good dose of nutritional yeast and a sprinkle of fresh herbs on top… Talk about comfortfood!
