cauliflower bolognese

I absolutely love this bolognese sauce. It’s very easy to make and cauliflower is an excellent ingredient to substitute the meat in a classic recipe like this.


the florets of one large cauliflower
3/4 cup mixed raw dry nuts such as walnuts, almonds and cashews
one medium red onion, thinly chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
pinch of red pepper flakes
1/4 cup white wine
splash of soy sauce
1 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup lightly packed chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp mixed herbs
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp olive oil

Process the dry nuts and cauliflower florets for few seconds in a food processor. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a sauce pot. Add the onion, garlic, pepper flakes and mixed herbs and saute for a couple of minutes. Add the cauliflower-nuts mix and cook until brown. Add the wine, soy sauce and tomato sauce and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 15-20 minutes and serve over pasta of your choice
