Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese – A Worthy Replacement of the Traditional

A traditional Bolognese is made with minced beef, otherwise it would be a vegetable stew or ratatouille. In this vegan spaghetti bolognese recipe we use plant based ‘meat’ to create a similar appearance and texture like the original version.

This recipe is made in the same way as our regular Bolognese sauce except for the addition of extra vegetables and red wine.  The soy mince absorbs all the flavours during cooking therefore producing an intensely flavoured dish which at first taste you might not instantly recognise as meat free!


Served with wholewheat pasta, vegetable noodles, or spiralized butternut squash make it a filling dish. As with regular Bolognese, storing the sauce overnight before serving makes it even more flavourful.
