I Quit Sugar - Lentil + Cauliflower Bolognese with Zoodles

Think bolognese is only for meat eaters? Think again! The Zoodle Bolognese is one of the most popular recipes in the Omni Meal Plans so we thought we’d better make a vegetarian version that tastes just as good!  

Servings: 2
Preparation: 15 mins
Cooking: 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 large (200g each) zucchinis, spiralized (or thinly slice zucchini longways and then into strips to make noodles).
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • 1 small (100g) brown onion, finely diced.
  • 1/4 small (150g) head cauliflower, finely chopped with a knife.
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander stems.
  • 1 small red chilli, finely chopped.
  • 1 cup Capsicum Sauce.
  • 1 cup Cooked Lentils.
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano.
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas.
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves, roughly chopped, to serve.
  • 30 g flaked Parmesan cheese, to serve.

Directions

1. First make your zucchini noodles. Heat half of the olive oil in a fry pan on medium heat. Add in spiralized zucchini. Cook and toss for 5 minutes until slightly softened. Place half of the zucchini into a bowl and the other half into a lunch box for tomorrow’s lunch.

2. In the same frying pan, heat the remaining olive oil over low-medium heat. Add in the onion and cauliflower and cook until both have softened (approximately 10 minutes). Add in coriander stems, chilli, Capsicum Sauce, Cooked Lentils, ¼ cup of water and dried oregano. Bring to a simmer for 10 minutes. Add in peas and stir through until heated. Once cooked, scoop the bolognese between the bowl for dinner and your container for lunch tomorrow.

3. Serve both portions with a sprinkle of flaked Parmesan and coriander leaves.
