Spaghetti Bolognese

Finally another pasta recipe, right?!

Besides my Pasta Alfredo and my Cannelloni recipe, there is no pasta recipe on my blog, even though I looooove Pasta and there are so many great recipe to try!
So I thought it´s definitely time to change that and add a third Pasta recipe to my blog: Here come my vegan Bolognese which contains celeriac, carrots, soy protein and of tomatoes ❤

It´s super nouring, easy to make and I´m sure everybody will love it. My boyfriend and I enjoyed this one for lunch and we both felt so very satisfied after it. Not only because our belly were well-filled, but also because it tasted so good and its´s 100% cruelty-free. Another way to show you that a vegan diet isn´t boring or biased. It also doesn´t mean that you have to skip all these yummy dishes you know from your childhood. It´s seriously the most asked quiestion: What do you eat for lunch/dinner? I guess the people understand, that there are several ways to replace the food for breakfast – plant milk for cow milk, plant yoghurt for ‘normal’ yoghurt’, vegan spread instead of cheese, meat and stuff like that… but they probably imagine a plate full of veggies for lunch/dinner over and over again, instead of the usual dishes like pasta, pizza, rice dishes, caseroles etc.

So my answer: I eat everything, that everyone else eat for lunch/dinner, I just find my ways to veganize these things. There are so many great vegan replacments or just recipe where the usual animal products are not even needed. When you struggle with these things, I´m happy to answer any question you have. Educate yourself on food blogs, books or videos. Get inspired and be open for new things ❤

I recently discovered the shop of Delinero. Delinero is a German online trader for premium foods for all over europa with the great slogan ‘Simply eat better’.
Do you know this shop?
You find all kinds of awesome foods in just one shop, so if you´re looking for special foods online, there is no need to buy them on different kinds of website, you simply go on their website, scroll through their biiig range of super delicious foods and pick your favourites.
From veggies and fruits, pasta, rice, antipasti, baking stuff and sweets to oils, vinegars and beverages. And they also offer packages with a different topic every month.

So when I decided to create a new pasta recipe, I looked up some ingredients in their shop and decided to try the colorful linguine-set, some italian herbs, a vinegar set and a baking mix for a nice baguette to enjoy with the pasta. I just love the idea to have so many great brands in just one online shop ❤

I couldn´t quite decide which type of the linuine I should try first, so I simply mixed them and tried all of them at the very same time 😀
The Yellow ones are Lemon&Pepper Linuine, the red one are red chili and the green ones are basil&garlic and I tell you, the red ones are seriously full of chili :O

As some kind of side dish, I decided to bake a nice baguette and I chose the white baguette from ‘Meisterwerk’. It tastes super good and is really easy to make. Just don´t forget to calculate the time of rest as it´s a yeast dough.
There is actually only some kind of dessert missing now to make everything perfect, but we were too full anyway after a plate and some baguette slices 😉

Ingredients for 2-3:

Spaghetti of your choice, I used these ones.

For the ‘Meat’balls:
40 g dried Soy Protein
1 Onion
1-2 tbsp Tomato Paste
1 tsp Mustard
Italian Pasta Herbs from Delinero
Sea Salt. White Pepper, Sweet Paprika Powder, Oregano
Olive Oil for the pan

For the Sauce:
1 can of diced Pizza Tomatoes
75 g Celeriac
135 g Carrots
1 Onion
1 clove Garlic
80 g dried Soy Protein
1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar, e.g. from Delinero
1 tbsp Balsamico Bianco
3 tbsp dry Red Wine
Sea Salt, White Pepper, Oregano
Olive Oi for the pan

Instruction:

For the ‘Meat’balls:
Cook the dried soy protein for 3-5 minutes until they are soft. Make sure to squeeze the water out of them, before you continue. You can use a dish towel or kitchen roll.
Peel the onion and use a food processor/blender to blend it together with the soy protein and all the other ingredients until you have a smooth paste. Heat up some olive oil in a pan and start forming small ball (it´s easier when you have slightly wet hands). Fry the meat balld from every side until they are golden brown and a bit crunchy.

For the Sauce:
Heat up some olive oil in a pan and dice the onion. Fry the dices for 1-2 minutes. In the meantime grate the celeriac with a grater by hand or with a food processor and peel and slice the carrots. You might want to to cut the carrots in half in case they are too thick before you cut small slices.
Add celiac, carrots as well as 3 tbsp water to the pan and let everything simmer for about 3 minutes. Again cook the dry soy protein until they are soft.
Now add the can of diced pizza tomatoes and the soy protein, cover up the pan let the sauce simmer for about 10 minutes – keep stirring from time to time. Now it´s the time to cook your spaghetti.
When the sauce starts to thicken due to water-loss, add apple cider vinegar, balsamico bianco, red wine and 2-3 tbsp water if necessary. Also add oregano, salt and peper.
