I hope you had a truly fantastic time over the festive period! I am back with a bang and a healthy Bolognese recipe, but this one has a twist!A simple, budget friendly and very tasty healthy Bolognese recipe made with soya or veggie mince, herbs and spices topped up with fresh parsley and chillies #vegan #dairyfree #veganuaryIt’s Veganuary this month, which means eating vegan food throughout January. Going vegan is apparently the new craze for 2018, but for me, this is more about promoting the health benefits of plant-based eating and showing how easy and varied this lifestyle is. You can find out more info, recipes, tips and ideas for how to go vegan on their website.A simple, budget friendly and very tasty healthy Bolognese recipe made with soya or veggie mince, herbs and spices topped up with fresh parsley and chillies #vegan #dairyfree #veganuaryToday’s healthy Bolognese recipe is a perfect example to show you that being plant-based/vegan doesn’t mean missing out on your favourite meals or, eating only salad! My healthy Bolognese is almost identical to the traditional Bolognese recipe apart from swapping beef mince for soya mince. I used Clearspring gluten-free organic soya mince as it is a quick cook vegan/vegetarian protein which can be used in a multitude of recipes instead of meat. Soya mince is low in fat, gluten-free and GMO-free. Clearspring textured soya protein is made from 100% European soya beans. To use it simply add the mince to boiling water or stock and soak for 10 minutes. Drain and squeeze out the excess water and then use as per normal mince.A simple, budget friendly and very tasty healthy Bolognese recipe made with soya or veggie mince, herbs and spices topped up with fresh parsley and chillies #vegan #dairyfree #veganuary

I like my Bolognese served with brown rice, a sprinkle of nutritional yeast, fresh chillies and baby gem lettuce. Or try it out with my turmeric rice, recipe in here.
