I had no idea if this one was going to work but it did and was SO good.

1 small onion | 1 portobello mushroom | 1 carrot | 2 tomatoes | 1 tin of lentils
1 tin of plum tomatoes | coconut oil | garlic powder | tomato puree
mixed herbs | sea salt | ground black pepper | paprika | spaghetti
nutritional yeast


  1. Finely chop the onion, mushroom and carrot
  2. Cook spaghetti
  3. Chop up the tomatoes
  4. Fry the finely chopped veg for a couple of minutes in 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  5. Add the tinned tomatoes, chopped tomatoes, a bit of tomato puree, mixed herbs, a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper with 1 teaspoon of paprika and 3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast to a saucepan, heat it up and stir for approx 10 minutes
  6. Add lentils and fried veg to the sauce and stir for approx 10 minutes
  7. Drain spaghetti and dish up!


This is another quick and really healthy meal. The mixture of lentils and tomatoes give the right texture for the bolognese without having to add a meat replacement.

I added violife cheese because why not!


Even if you’re not vegan, this is ideal if you’re looking to lose weight or just for a healthier option. Enjoy!

Would you give it a go?
