We used to have spaghetti Bolognese every week growing up, but now adopting a more plan-based life style we’ve experimented with different ingredients like lentils which have a similar texture to mince,

  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 spring onions sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 scotch bonnet diced
  • 2x 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. ground pimento
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2x 400g green/brown lentils
  • 2 tsp jerk seasoning / all purpose
  • 30g parsley chopped
  • 320g spaghetti to serve

Heat olive oil in a frying pan and add onion, spring onions, garlic, and scotch bonnet pepper. Cook down over a medium heat for 5-7 minutes until soft. Then add chopped tomatoes and spice it up with salt pepper, thyme and pimento.

Add bell peppers, lentils and jerk seasoning and simmer for 10minutes.
