Pasta Bolognese as a child was so comforting. Sometimes, you just miss flavors you had as a child. This vegan version of the pasta dish is very easy to make and takes less than half an hour to cook. It doesn't contain mushrooms like other vegan equivalents and is boasting with protein!

Pasta Bolognese With Red Wine [Vegan, Gluten-Free]




For the Bolognese Sauce:

  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 finely chopped carrot
  • 1 finely chopped celery
  • 1 1/2 cups of textured vegetable protein (TVP)
  • A few finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup dry red wine (not sweet)
  • 8 tablespoons tomato pureé (or 4 tablespoons tomato paste)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika powder
  • 1 teaspoon BBQ seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon oregano

For the Other Ingredients:

  • Pasta of your choice, gluten-free if needed


  1. Very finely chop 1 onion, 1 carrot and 1 celery and sauté in a large pan in a bit of oil until softened.
  2. Then add 1 1/2 cups frozen meat-free mince (also called TVP, if you can only get the dry variety check label as you might have to prepare it separately first). Then add all other sauce ingredients. Stir and cook on medium to high heat for 15 minutes (add a bit more water if needed). If you can’t find tomato purée, then use roughly 4 tbsp of tomato paste and a bit more water. If you don’t have either then you can use tinned tomatoes in juice, but this will increase the cooking time. In this case you have to cook for roughly an hour otherwise the tomato sauce would be too acidic. Alternatively just add a tiny bit of sugar or a tiny bit of baking soda to neutralize the acidity.
  3. While the sauce is in the making cook the pasta of your choice to go with it.
