Vegan pasta bolognese


  1. Boil water in a separate pot as you will use this to cook your spaghetti. While most spaghetti will work, I prefer to use Barilla spaghetti because of its quality. It is non sticky and tastes amazing with any pasta sauce you pair it with.
  2. Start by blending together one bell pepper and 100ml of water. I used the Nutribullet blender because it blends everything fast and to a smooth consistency.
  3. Secondly pour oil into a pan on medium heat. Put the diced onions in the pan and fry it for a couple of minutes. Then add the garlic and fry for 1-2 minutes. Make sure to not burn the garlic.
  4. Add the tomatoes, cilantro and the blended bell peppers and stir everything together. Let it simmer for 20-25 minutes until the liquid has reduced.
  5. Add salt, pepper, paprika powder and cumin powder to taste.
  6. Finally serve the cooked spaghetti on a plate and add the sauce on top.
