Meatless Spaghetti Bolognese

Meatless Spaghetti Bolognese

I get asked all the time: How can I cook for vegetarians and meat-eaters at the same time, without having to cook two entirely separate meals? There are plenty of ways you can cook for everyone at once. Over the years I tried many many soy/” fake meat” products and so far, my absolute favorite is Impossible Burger/beyond meat. Just substitute it in any recipe that calls for ground beef (this recipe is not sponsored!) and enjoy.

  • 1 pack 12-16 oz Impossible Burger ground
  • 2-3 tablespoons (30-45 ml) olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2-3 celery ribs chopped
  • 2 large carrots peeled and chopped

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 can 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 lb (450 grams /1 pack) uncooked spaghetti

  • Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Uncover the skillet and cook for 20-30 minutes more until the liquid is reduced to half.
  • Cook the pasta according to the package directions, drain.
