Now that you’ve got all your ingredients handy, it's time to get into the kitchen and do the wonders. To make this recipe you need to approach it in a stepwise manner and refer to our guide if you miss out on any stage.

1. Chop your onions into tiny pieces

2. Fry these cut pieces of onions with olive oil till it becomes fragrant not allowing them to burn.

3. It's time to introduce your garlic, celery, and carrots while still cooking.

4. Stir for about 6 minutes then season and add the available herbs.

5. Make it brown by adding the tomato paste. Generously add your red wine and cook till it gets fairly dried. Then add your chopped fresh tomatoes and their juice.

6. Introduce your hemp seeds, lentils,s, and broth. Walnut can be used in place of hemp seeds. Walnuts, especially the toasted ones help to make the flavor pleasurable but usually require grinding, unlike the hemp seeds. 

Make your lentil small if you are aiming to finish off very fast, bigger lentils will increase the cooking time.

7. Then allow to boil and cover. Allow cooking below boiling point for up to 30 minutes.

8. Remove the cover lids as soon as the lentils are soft, and cook for a while to reduce the liquid.

How is it Served?

Now that your meal is ready you have to pay attention to serving. A perfectly prepared vegan recipe that is poorly served will ruin it all. I know you want your family or loved ones to appreciate the pains taken effort you put in to make this possible.

Remember to keep your serving strictly vegan.

This meal can be served with different pasta and still come out very good. Some chose to serve this with Spaghetti, Penne, or wholewheat but whichever option you decide for making sure it is vegan and possibly gluten-free. You have different options for pasta that are truly gluten-free.

You can also sprinkle creamy Polenta or vegan Parmesan. In recent times Vegan Parmesan are available at supermarkets and local stores. Make sure you avoid regular Parmesan as it the not vegan or dairy-free.

What Drink Is Perfect with it

Bear in mind that the best drink you can get in this world is water and blends perfectly with Bolognese. Also, your Montepulciano D’Abruzzo or simple Chianti can go well with this meal.

How To Preserve

Personally, I don’t encourage waste so if you’ve got some leftovers, and you can’t find Vegans around to give then dial my number, lol… 

I hope you know I’m joking. Your leftover can be stored in the refrigerator and can stay fresh and perfectly edible for 3 days. Make sure you put it in a good plastic container with a cover lid till you are ready to have it again.

If you want to have your favorite Bolognese again you have to take it out from the fridge and transfer it to a suitable saucepan. Add little water and heat the Bolognese you have in your saucepan till it’s hot enough for consumption. This should take 5-10 minutes.

Can it be made into soup:

This can be achieved with ease, all you have to do to add more water and vegetable stock. This will give you the perfect Lentil Bolognese soup that you can have with bread.
