  • 1 package of spaghetti – whole wheat recommended
  • 1 onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 Tbsp dried or 1 bunch fresh oregano/basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ⅔ cup soya chunks (TVP)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3½ oz (¼ cup) tomato paste


  1. Cook spaghetti according to instructions and drain.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the onion and garlic. Fry the onion for 4 minutes, add the garlic, and cook for another minute.
  3. Chop the tomatoes, add to the pan, stir and fry for another 3 minutes. Add spices to the pan and stir for half a minute.
  4. Add soy granules, tomato paste and a cup of boiling water and stir for another few minutes until mixture is combined well.
  5. Pour sauce over each plate of spaghetti.


  • The TVP can either be replaced with minced meat substitute, or with cooked black lentils (and add less water).
  • The Bolognese sauce can also be used to make meatballs. Use only half a cup of water and add a cup of breadcrumbs after cooking. Stir, form into patties and fry until browned on each side.
