Today I made lentil bolognese because
A) ALOT of things I’m good at making use quorn mince , bolognese , cottage pie, lasagne, chilli and sometimes you can have too much of one thing
B) I’m trying to use lots more vegetables
C) I forgot to buy coconut milk for the quorn curry I had planned for today.
I found a few recipes on the Internet but I didn’t like everything in any of them , so I jiggled them around a bit.
Two tins chopped tomatoes ( tesco value are just as good as the expensive ones )
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 clove of garlic
1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce
A blob of tomato purée
A tin of green lentils.
I cooked the onions in a pan with some olive oil , when they were getting soft I added the peppers , carrot , and garlic
I cooked it all for a while ( very precise cooking times, I know)
Then added the tomato purée , soy sauce and black pepper.
Because I have a fussy family that don’t like bits in sauce * sigh* I chucked it all in the blender for a minute.
Then I put it back in the saucepan and added the lentils.
I cooked it on a medium to low heat while the pasta cooked , when it was all done I drained the pasta and stirred the lentil bolognese on to it.
Excuse the rubbish photo , I was halfway done eating when I remembered to take a pic.
It could have done with a sprinkle of cheese on top , if I had remembered to buy cheese but otherwise it was delicious.
There was some bolognese leftover as lentils were a step too far for the kids :-/, they had chips in curry sauce with naan bread Instead. so I have popped it in the freezer , next week I will have a ready made healthy meal ready and waiting for me.
And tomorrow I have a curry sauce waiting for me , it just needs some coconut milk.
Organised and eating well. What’s wrong with me ?
