Soya (TVP) Bolognese

soya bolognese

This classic for both vegetarians/vegans and meat eaters can be used in many recipes. Of course those of us who don’t eat meat make it with other things such as soya mince, chopped seitan or even lentils. We’re used to seeing it served with pasta as I’ve done here but it can be served with any cereal, think rice or quinoa. I especially like it with wheatberries. And don’t forget there’s always vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie yum yum yum… I’ve got another unusual use for it that I’ll share with you next week but for now the classic version of vege bolognese.

    I’ve actually never used TVP before! Sounds like a great substitution for meat in this sauce!
