Simple and Rich Bolognese

We get it, sneaking veggies into our kids meals is the ‘thing to do’. But sometimes, let’s face it. We just want a bolognese that tastes like bolognese – in all its meaty glory! That’s where Lisa from Small Steps Living’s rich, flavoursome and super simple bolognese recipe comes handy.


1 tbls olive oil

3 garlic cloves thinly diced

1 onion diced

500 g beef mince

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 1/2 cups tomato passata

2 tbls soy sauce

2 tsp Italian herbs

1 tbls sugar


1. Warm the oil over medium heat in a pan.

2. Add the onion and garlic and cook until onion is translucent – don’t burn the garlic!

3. Then add mince to pan. Once cooked through add the rest of the ingredients, bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes (turn down the heat if you need to). You want a really good reduction.

Serve on top of your pasta of choice with a little parmesan cheese (buy the block and grate yourself – the pre-grated variety has weird stuff added).
