As you possibly know, I love my pasta! 🙂 And I have quite a few pasta sauce recipes on this blog, especially some vegan friendly alternatives for bolognese sauce. There is my ‘famous’ tofu bolognese, a soy-free bolognese sauce and a recipe for meat-free balls.

But this time I wanted to add a few more extras. It is not only vegan and gluten-free, but also without soy, nuts, seeds, legumes and tomato! But don’t worry, it still comes with a lot of flavour 😉

Please note: This recipes is low-fat, eg no oil is being used. If you are interested in using less oil, I highly recommend to purchase a very good, non-toxic, non stick frying pan.

For 2 generous portions you’ll need:

250g mushrooms, cut in small quarters
2 sweet red peppers, diced
1/2 onion, finely diced
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 tablespoon ground sweet paprika
1 tablespoon rice flour
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
salt & pepper to taste

1 1/2 cup (375ml) water

Preparation:

1. In a good non-stick frying pan, heat one tablespoon of water and cook/roast the onions until golden brown. Then add mushrooms and cook while stirring almost constanly until they are much smaller and juicy (approx. 15 minutes).
