A few years ago, I would never have imagined going vegan. Even if I’m not a 100% vegan now, I am still resorting to vegan recipes and dishes more and more often and trying out new foods. So it was with this vegan Lentils Bolognese, which I like at least as good as the original spaghetti bolognese .

What I find particularly great about this variant is that absolutely no animal products have to be used and the Lentils Bolognese have great nutritional values even without meat. If you even take a closer look, this Lentils Bolognese is much healthier than the original meat variant, as it has very little fat but still has enough protein. Lentils become a real superfood here too!
