Tip of Serge:

This recipe is the perfect basic recipe for a vegetarian spaghetti bolognese .

Also called spaghetti Seitanese, because of the vegetarian minced meat of Bertyn. This recipe is the perfect basic recipe for a vegetarian spaghetti bolognese. The minced meat in this classic dish is in fact replaced by vegetarian seitan minced meat. Bertyn minced meat is organic, delicious in taste and texture, low in fat, low in carbohydrates and high in protein. In short, the ideal meat substitute for the vegetarian, vegan and flexitarian of any age. Due to its high protein content and low calorie content, our seitan is also ideal for the athlete.

Want to make the sauce even yummier? Stir in a little parmesan cheese and let it melt into the sauce. (NB: Parmesan is not vegan.) You can shorten the cooking time for this recipe by using a yummy tomato passata instead of fresh tomatoes. For a bit of variety, top off the sauce with some basil.
