A tasty tasty way to enjoy bolognese without meat- a rich lentil ragu
I’ve been trying to find ways to get more legumes into our diet, and I have been dying to try out a lentil ragu recipe after seeing the idea on Pinterest!
I used puy lentils, although you could also use green lentils- personally I would avoid red lentils as they can go very mushy, but I’ve seen some versions that do use them.
One of the keys to a good bolognese sauce is giving it a nice long simmer, and this therefore works really well with dry lentils, as they have time to cook to perfection in the sauce.
This is a great healthy, lean alternative to using meat- and also a great meal to try if you have kids- mine loved it and said they preferred it to regular bolognese!
