Vegetable Bolognaise in the Thermomix

Vegetable Bolognaise in the Thermomix

This sauce is such a favourite of mine because it tastes rich, hearty and satisfying, but really it’s all veggies! You would never guess the base was zucchini, carrot and mushrooms. Make this recipe throughout spring, summer and autumn, loading up the freezer to get you through winter, or whenever you need a quick meal. Heat up a container, cook some pasta and you’ve got the ultimate bowl food, faster than you could order takeout.
