Vegetarian food doesn’t have to include ‘fake’ meat, beans and pulses make great fillers for dinners. This Bolognese was super quick to whip up and is filled with vitamins and minerals to give you a healthy dinner tonight. Serves 4.
All you need is
200g baked beans
1 tbsp mixed herbs
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp ketchup
½ bell pepper
2 garlic cloves
1 red onion
To make it just
Slice the mushrooms, carrot and red onion into small chunks, peel and finely chop the garlic cloves.
In a saucepan combine all ingredients, leave to simmer for 7-8 minutes on a medium heat.
Once cooked either enjoy with wholewheat spaghetti for dinner or leave to cool and freeze into portions for a later date.
The reviews are in
I try to eat vegetarian as often as possible, as it is a cheap and healthy alternative to meat based dishes. You can serve a family of four for under £3 which is ideal.
The great thing about lentils is that they work so well as a substitute for mince as it’s texture is similar.
For added healthy fats, top with an avocado.
