Intro: 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)
Red bell pepper
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.
