If you're after a deliciously rich lentil bolognese, look no further! This slow-cooked Italian sauce is a mix of caramelized vegetables, lentils, and tomatoes seasoned with a special savory ingredient.


– Pasta – Olive oil – Onion + garlic cloves – Carrots + red bell pepper – Sea salt + sugar – Tomato paste – Miso – Dried brown lentils – Cherry tomatoes

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it starts to soften, about 5 minutes.


Add the carrots, red pepper, sea salt, and sugar to the skillet and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until everything is well caramelized, about 15 minutes.


Add the garlic and tomato paste to the skillet and let it cook until the tomato paste is caramelized and fragrant, about 3 minutes.


Add the miso, lentils, and water to the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the lentils cook, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, or until they are soft.


Stir the lentils occasionally and add more water if they are looking dry. Stir in the cherry tomatoes.
