Vegan Bolognese

This Vegan Bolognese sauce is a plant-based take on the classic red pasta sauce. It uses a variety of veggies, lots of fresh herbs, mushrooms, and lentils to unlock a ton of flavor. The texture of the sauce is thick and meaty enough to coat whatever pasta strikes your fancy.

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 onion minced or diced finely
