Meatless Monday: Courgette 'bolognese'


I have treated myself to a spiralizer.  This 'on-trend' gadget enables you to make 'pasta' from vegetables.  If you use low carb veg, it is a boon to a low carb diet enabling you to still have the 'pasta' dishes you enjoy.  In this recipe, I have used courgettes and made a 'bolognese' sauce using soya mince.  You could also use aubergine or butternut squash instead of courgettes.


Serves 2

You will need
3 medium courgettes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped 
2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
100g organic dried soya mince
2 tsp organic reduced salt boullion
1 carton organic chopped tomatoes
pinch stevia
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
fresh basil, chopped plus basil leaves to decorate

Spiralize the courgettes (see photo above) and place in a saucepan.  Cover with water and bring to the boil then simmer (they won't take long, just a few minutes). Fry the onion in the oil for 2 minutes then add the garlic.  Add the tomatoes, soya mince, boullion, basil and stevia.  Simmer for a few minutes adding a little water if necessary.
Drain the courgettes.  Serve topped with the soya mince sauce and sprinkle nutritional yeast over the mince for a 'cheesy' flavour.  Top with basil leaves.

Enjoy!
