Cholesterol-Free Bolognese

SPAGHETTI-BOLOGNESE-2We’ve heard about Quorn TM, an excellent meat-free protein alternative for vegetarians, and vegans. It tastes just like meat and with it you can make practically any dish that usually comes with meat, but without the cholesterol.  But did you know that it’s also a great ingredient if you are going gluten-free? It’s made of Mycoprotein (part of the fungi family), that is a more sustainable and it only has 2% saturated fat, and it contains no gluten. Here’s a fantastic recipe to try that you can share with your whole family, if you are watching your gluten intake.

INGREDIENTS

200g Quorn TM Meat-Free Grounds
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 piece Onion, minced
2 cloves Garlic, crushed
200g Mushrooms Porcini
or Chanterelle, diced
1 tbsp Tomato Paste
1 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
400ml Tomato Basil Sauce or crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp Vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce
1 piece Vegetable Bouillon Cube, dissolved in 150ml hot water
1 tsp Dried Oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
300g Spaghetti, cooked
Hard cheese (Parmesan or Grana padano)

DIRECTIONS

In a pan, saute the onions over medium heat until translucent. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, and then add the mushrooms. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Turn up the heat to high and add the Quorn Grounds, tomato paste, ketchup, tomato sauce, worcestershire sauce, vegetable stock, and Oregano, and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Stir to combine well, cover and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.

Pour sauce over pasta and serve with grated Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
