A pan of Lentil BologneseWith the cost of meat rising, this is a delicious, cost-effective alternative.



  • 1 onion
  • 8 oz chopped mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 3 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (or vegetable broth)
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 1 14.5 oz. can tomatoes
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Sauté one onion in olive oil with salt and pepper to taste, covered, for 4 minutes on medium heat.
  2. Increase the heat to medium-high and add 8 ounces of chopped mushrooms. Cook for 8-10 minutes, uncovered.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and add 2 chopped garlic cloves and a pinch or two of red pepper flakes. Cook a minute.
  4. Add 3 Tbsp. tomato paste and cook 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of dry white wine (I used vegetable broth) and scrape up any bits from the bottom of the pan.
  5. Add 1 cup of lentils, one 14.5 ounce can of tomatoes, and 2 cups of broth (I used vegetable.) Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer 25-30 minutes until the lentils are done. Serve over rice or pasta.
