Fibre-Rich Bolognese Sauce

Bolognese sauce is full of goodness and flavour and a firm family favourite in most households. The beauty with this recipe is its rich in fibre thanks to the added vegetables and beans to support friendly bacteria living in your child’s gut.

1 kg good quality minced beef
2 400g tin cannellini or borlotti beans, drained and rinsed
1 onion, finely chopped
1 leek, white part only, finely chopped

1 cup gluten free vegetable stock or Gut Healing Bone Broth Pinch of sea salt
Pepper to taste

Method

  • Heat oil in large pan and add the onion, garlic and leek. Sauté until translucent and add carrot, zucchini and garlic. Sauté for another 10 minutes or until soft.
  • Meanwhile, in another in a big saucepan brown the beef, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. When cooked, add the tomato and beans to the the meat and stir through.
  • Combine the onion and vegetables to the cooked meat in one pot, add the stock and bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer for at least 40 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
