This is the healthiest and yummiest bolognese sauce that you can whip up for your entire family. I wouldn't say it is easy to whip up though, as it is very time consuming. It involves a lot of chopping, blending and cooking. But you can cook a big batch of sauce and freeze for use later, which ultimately saves time.
For the sauce, I used:
4 large plump tomatoes (organic)
Half head of cauliflower
Blend all the above ingredients together.
I think this gave me about 1 liter of pure vegetable puree for the bolognese sauce.
I used 3 large big onions and 1 bulb of garlic. I have to thank my dear part-time helper, Maria for helping to chop these up.
After browning the garlic and onions, put in the minced meat. Stir-fry the meat until it turns dry and brown. Add in the blended vegetable puree and a handful of bay leave, some dried Italian herbs and cracked black pepper and let simmer for about 20 minutes.
Add salt and sugar to taste.
I used antibiotic and growth hormone free pork purchased from De Market supermarket. I bought pork belly and got the pork section guys to mince the meat for me.
The portion in the glassware is for deep-freezing.
For dinner, next day breakkie at home, recess in school and lunch at home the next day.
I asked Cass and Drama Queen if they were sure about eating pork bolognese pasta for 4 meals in a row and they gave me a resounding YES!
Honestly, I can't eat the same food for 4 meals straight. Can you?
