Spaghetti bolognese has always been one of my all-time favourites, and is a fab meal to sneak in a load of veg without really knowing about it when you eat it! For this one I add grated sweet potato and carrot to give it that extra sweetness which makes it popular with the kids as well as me!

1 hr

Ingredients

  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 500 g lean mince 5% fat
  • 2 tins chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 carrots grated
  • 2 small/1 large sweet potato grated
  • 1 dessert spoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 beef oxo cube
  • 1 dessert spoon soy sauce
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped oregano or dry if you don’t have fresh
  • 1 tbsp low calorie sweetener I use Stevia

Instructions

  • Use Frylight to gently fry the chopped onion (about 10 minutes until it’s well softened. Add the garlic, and fry for another 2 minutes.)
  • Add in the mince and stir fry until it is browned – breaking it up with the spoon as you go so you don’t get clumps
  • Add the 2 tins tomato, and bring to a simmer
  • Add in the grated carrot, grated sweet potato,Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, tomato puree, oregano, sweetener and sprinkle over the beef oxo. Stir well, season and leave on a low simmer. I like to simmer mine for at least an hour so that it’s all really nicely blended and the tomatoes break down, but you could give it half an hour if you were in a hurry!
  • Serve with plenty fresh chopped parsley and spaghetti

Notes

You can add in any extra veg that you need to use up! Mushrooms, leeks, courgettes, spinach- it's my favourite way of using up all those bits and pieces left over form other recipes!
