Easy Vegan Bolognese

Are you ready for this? Easy Vegan Bolognese is by far the yummiest pasta dish I’ve ever made and it’s super simple in the best of ways. Who needs meat when you can make a filling and delectable sauce that emulates the texture and flavors of the original dish. Lentils and mushrooms have been two of my favorite foods since going vegan quite some time ago. Using mushrooms and lentils together creates a wonderful “meaty” texture and pairs perfectly with a basic tomato sauce. Everyone will adore Easy Vegan Bolognese! You can choose whatever kind of pasta you like but I think yellow lentil spaghetti and chickpea pasta are healthier options that taste amazing.

This is what the lentils and mushrooms mix should look like right before you add the canned tomato sauce. Yummmm.
