Last night Ad and I tried a Slimming World Bolognese Recipe which I thought I’d share. It was a vegetarian recipe but I replaced the Quorn for beef mince.
We both liked it. but I think next time I will cut up some lean bacon (cutting off the fat) to add to the flavour.
low calorie cooking spray
500g mince (5% fat or less) or Quorn Mince
1 onion, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and diced (I used 3 small ones)
3 celery sticks, roughly chopped (we missed this out as neither of us like celery)
4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
400g can chopped tomatoes
4 tbsp tomato puree
1tsp dried mixed herbs
Salt & freshly ground pepper
- Spray a large non-stick pan with low calorie cooking spray and place on a high heat
- Add the mince and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until browned, then add your onion, carrot, celery and garlic and stir fry for 1 minute (I did it for about 3-4 minutes)
- Add the pasta, tomato puree, chopped tomatoes and dried herbs, seasoning well with salt and pepper and cook on a medium heat for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
This meal is to serve 4, is ready in less than 30 mins and if you are following Slimming World, it is Syn free.
I will post any other recipes that we try and think are worth sharing.
