Healthy lentil bolognese! You’ve gotta try this vegan lentil bolognese made with mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes and lentils.
* I use the umami powder from Trader Joe’s and find it gives a nice umami hit of flavor to the sauce. If you don’t have it, you can substitute dried porcini powder or omit.
** I typically don’t add in any sugar to my tomato sauce recipes, but find that this recipe benefits from a little sweet balance to enhance the tomato taste.
***Canned lentils are best in this recipe, but if you can’t find them then substitute 1 1/2 cups cooked brown lentils.
