Vegan Bolognese Sauce

Vegan Bolognese Sauce

Serves: 4


  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato passata
  • 1 cup Lotus Textured Soy Protein (TVP)
  • Oil, for cooking


In a large pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Sauté the onions for 2 minutes or until slightly golden. Add in the tomatoes and cover to continue cooking for another 2 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and desired herbs. Add the textured soy protein and pasta sauce, stir well until combined. If the sauce looks too dry (TVP absorbs a lot of liquid), add 1/4 cup of hot water at a time, until the desired consistency. Cover and leave to rest for 2 minutes. Serve with fresh pasta, basil and Lotus Savoury Yeast Flakes.
