Vegan version of Bolognese Sauce that is both hearty and delicious. This recipe is going to blow your skirt up!
I’m so excited to share this recipe with you today. My incredibly talented friend, Kathy Hester, has a cookbook out called The Great Vegan Bean Book. She offered to send me a copy of her cookbook to review and she’s also given me the nod to give away a copy of this amazing book. So make sure you scroll to the bottom for giveaway details.
I met Kathy a couple of years ago at a food conference. I had the pleasure of riding back to our hotel in a golf cart with her. We had already met, but it was that ride that cemented our friendship. Every time I think of my attending my very first conference I think of Kathy, and our chat on that golf cart. She was just the sweetest, kindest person. She took the edge of my nerves so quickly. She’s just good people and I adore her immensely.
Kathy has a blog called Healthy Slow Cooking. It’s such a cool blog, and great inspiration for meatless meals. I will admit readily that I am, in fact, a carnivore. I am not a Vegan, nor a Vegetarian. However, we do eat meatless at least once or twice a week. I am a big fan of the Meatless Monday movement. So I am always on the lookout for great meatless recipes. I feel like it’s a healthy approach for my family to cut back on our consumption of meat. It’s also a cost-effective way to feed a family with big appetites.
What I love most about Kathy’s cookbooks are you can enjoy them whether you are Vegan, Vegetarian, or meat eater. The recipes are filling and hearty. That works well for my family. We like protein, in any form. I have to admit we’re not big salad eaters. We like a substantial meal. The recipes in Kathy’s cookbook fill that need. Deliciously, in fact.
I made her Lentil Quinoa Bolognese Sauce. It is spectacular. I’m munching on a batch while I write this up. Consequently my computer screen is covered in sauce. Now that is a sign of a good meal!

I love this bolognese sauce so much. You will not miss the meat in this one. I can guarantee you that. It’s hearty, filling and absolutely delicious.
I did leave the kale out of mine. Kale is not my friend. I have IBS and dark greens really bother me. So just FYI, mine is missing the kale.
I tried a few other recipes from Kathy’s book, The Great Vegan Bean Book. Every single one wowed this family. I particularly loved the Enchanted Vanilla Pancakes, the Pepita Black Bea Dip, and the Vanilla and Rose Water Parfaits. Every recipe was easy to follow and the taste was bang on. I am so utterly impressed with this cookbook.
Full disclosure: Kathy provided me a copy of her book, for free, but there was no other compensation for this review. Y’all know me, if I didn’t like something I’d straight up tell you that. This is one I not only liked, but loved.
Also, this post contains affiliate links to the cookbook. I am an Amazon Affiliate, which means I get a few gold doubloons if you order anything through me. My goal is to let that account add up so I can buy myself a new lens for my camera. Right now I can afford 1/1000 of that lens. Just keeping it real.
