Fibre-Rich Bolognese Sauce For Healthy Kids

This bolognese sauce is full of goodness and flavour and a firm family favourite in most households.   Healthy kids can enjoy this on their morning gluten-free toast for a protein-rich breakfast to keep them full or serve over mashed vegies or vegetable spaghetti for lunch or dinner.


  • 1kg minced beef
  • 1 400g tin borlotti beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 400g tin cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 1 leek, white part only, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled & grated
  • 2 zucchinis, peeled & grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 400g (14 oz.) can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup/250ml gluten free vegetable stock or Gut Healing Bone Broth
  • Pinch of sea salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in large pan and add the onion and leek. Sauté until translucent and add the remaining grated vegetables and garlic.  Sauté for another 10 minutes or until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, in a big saucepan brown the beef, breaking it up with a wooden spoon.  When cooked, add the canned tomato and beans to the meat and stir through.
  3. Add the tomato mix to the meat and combine together in one pot.  Add the vegetable stock and bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer for at least 40 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
  4. If you want to completely hide the vegetables and beans, use a stick blender to breakdown the beans while it’s still in the pot.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.

Serves: 4
