Such a score because my Meat Eater Husband and Son loved it & my picky toddler ate a lot of it .. until she noticed the garlic bread, and then she only wanted bread. Womp womp. Lol. Its got a good amt of veggies in it! The lentils give it a meat-ish like of feel. And shhh don’t tell, but I used about half a package of mushrooms. The husband HATES mushrooms and usually wont eat them, but he has no idea that his yummy dinner was full of mushrooms! MuhHahaha!! (Unless of course, he reads this blog…) Now if you don’t like mushrooms either, don’t run away. The sauce is blended smooth in a food processor and you really cannot tell that there are mushrooms in it! Of course you can omit them if you want to be difficult 😛 but don’t! It feels great, feeding your family something that’s good tasting and good for them.
Heres the recipe: Vegan Veggie Lentil Bolognese
