HEY YOU GUUUYYYSSSSS 😀
I know I posted very similar picture last night, but I wanted to give you the recipe. Hope you enjoy!
You will need:
Pasta (spaghetti, penne, fusilli etc)
Tomato pasta sauce
Can of lentils
Sweet corn (optional)
Canned carrots (optional)
1/4 of an onion
1 garlic clove
Salt and pepper
What to do
In a large frying pan on medium to low heat, heat a little oil then fry the onion for 2 minutes, add 1 chopped garlic clove ( as small as you can get it). Let onion and garlic cook for another 2 minutes.
Drain your can of lentils, after the cooking time for the onion and garlic add the lentils to the pan, add salt, pepper and any herbs you like ( I used mixed herbs), cook and stir for another 2 minutes. Now add sweet corn and carrots if you want them, maybe add mushrooms if you like them. At this stage I added a pinch of ground coriander, gave everything a mix and cooked for a further minute.
I now add half a jar of tomato pasta sauce ( Dolmio, you can use what you like, just make sure it's vegan if that's what you want. Maybe chopped tomatoes or pasata if you don't like pasta sauce from jar)
I stir everything, turn heat up a little and try and cook sauce down ( reducing the liquid, sauce took maybe 7-10 minutes). Whilst sauce is cooking, cook your pasta. I boil kettle, add pasta to saucepan, pour over boiled water, add salt, put pan on high heat until boiling, when boiling, bring heat down and simmer for how long it says on packet.
Back to the sauce, I add the rest of the pasta sauce to the pan, and cook that down again. Sauce will be done more or less same time as pasta, but just make sure nothing is burning lol. Once pasta is cooked ( Al dente, meaning slight night, but not under cooked, if it's spaghetti, get a bit and throw it at wall or cupboard door, if it sticks, it should be done lol). Drain pasta, turn heat off for sauce and dish up and enjoy! Vegan spaghetti bolognese
