Vegetarian Bolognese

You will never miss meat in this simple vegan meat sauce! This pasta dinner has all the classic flavors of the classic beef sauce you want, but is full of vegetables, nuts, and quinoa!

Why do you like this vegan:

It has an oily taste and no meat at all! The mixture of quinoa and minced beans mimics the minced meat in this recipe and it works! To be honest, I almost said that I like this vegetarian beef noodle more than traditional beef noodle sauce. Sing without weight.

Full of components that are easy to use! If you are worried about healthy nutritious food for your family, then above all, you have come to the right place! Among gourmets in the Midwest, authentic food that makes it easy for you to feed your family is my first destination, and this recipe really shows this intention! Nuts, quinoa, fresh vegetables, dried herbs and tomatoes form the basis of these delicious ingredients, all as close as possible to their original shape!

Vegetables are everywhere, and your family will love it! If you have picky food at home, you should try this sauce! Chopped vegetables are so good that they are mixed with sauce and are barely recognizable! Also, if your child hasn’t touched a quinoa with a 10-foot pole, let me assure you that he won’t even know quinoa on a plate!

Also, if you want to get your kids excited about eating, try asking them to help you prepare this pasta with vegetable sauce! My daughter fried all the tomatoes with her little hands and she was the best assistant when stirring. Obviously, children next to a fire must be trained carefully and save money for parents or guardians, but make your children enjoy the mess in the kitchen! You might be surprised how happy they are when they help them have dinner!
