Introduction: Bolognese Sauce (with TVP)

I love spaghetti with Bolognese sauce. But, as now I'm trying to quit eating meat, I had to find an alternative recipe. So I started using TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)

This is my first instructable, and English isn't my native language, so please be patient.

Editing:I have made a Spanish version of this Instructible

Step 1: Ingredients

TVP (1/2 cup)
Tomato puree
Red bell pepper
Soy Sauce
Laurel leaves

Step 2: TVP

First, hydrate the TVP. Ten minutes should be enough if you use hot water (1 part of TVP, 2 parts of water) Then extract as much water as you can.

Step 3: Chopping

In the meantime, chop the pepper and chive, and grate the carrots. If you have olives you can add them too, or garlic, or even zucchini.

Step 4: Cooking

Fry (with low fire) the TVP with the vegetables, oregano and laurel. Be careful not to burn it; I add soy sauce to keep the mixture hydrated, and keep stirring. After a couple of minutes add the tomato puree. Then wait another five minutes, stirring now and then.

Step 5: Eat It

And that's it!

Now you can eat your sauce with spaghetti, or rice.

Good Instructable. It might be worth adding "Textured Vegetable Protein" before someone asks.

Thanks, lemonie. I had to search to find the right name, because here we know it as "carne de soya" (soy meat)
