Spaghetti Bolognese remains a firm favourite dish the world over, but it’s one that we secretly know can’t possibly be that healthy. The reality is a seriously calorific event, often loaded with salt and high in fats (and not the healthy avocado-esque kinds). As part of my ongoing collaboration with Quorn, I’ve created a version that you can consider a far healthier alternative. As I’m a pescatarian (fish, but no meat) I’ve always used products like Quorn Meat-free Mince as a high-protein, low-saturated-fat source of nutrition – something I personally consider to be a key part of any healthy diet.

Instructions

SAUCE: Ingredients (serves 2)
1. 10 ripe tomatoes
2. Large handful of fresh basil
3. Pinch of pink salt

5. 2 cloves of garlic
6. (optional) 1/2 onion

3. Thinly slice the garlic and the onion and fry for a few minutes in coconut oil along with a tbsp of fresh basil. Make sure it doesn’t burn.
4. Add the tomatoes, a pinch of chilli and pink salt and let simmer for 10 minutes
5. Once it’s finished add another large chunk of fresh basil and prepare to add it to the below…
