How to make vegetarian bolognese

Bolognese is one of my favourite meals.

A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to film John from The People’s Supermarket making his version of bolognese as part of a project I was running at the time.

John’s recipe produces great results (I tried some at the end of filming) but I wanted a version with less meat in it that I can cook after work during the week . . . so here’s my vegetarian version of John’s recipe  which is just as tasty but relatively low-fat (and adjusted to serve two people).

Lunch from South East London

Burrata is essentially mozzarella filled with cream. It tastes good.

I had a hankering for some and Natoora kindly held some for me at their Saturday morning stall in Spa Terminus, London (they deliver too).

I grabbed a stick of white bread from the St John Bakery whilst I was in the area, along with some tomatoes from Tayshaw Greengrocer.

When I got home I drizzled olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the tomatoes and sprinkled with ground pepper and sea salt, then roasted in the oven at 140 degrees celcius for about 45 minutes. Then I left them to cool for a few minutes before serving with the burrata and a hunk of bread.

It were reet good.

Wine I like: Bellotti Bianco 2010

A white, Italian wine that tastes of pear.

This ‘Bellotti Bianco’ has a distinctive taste of melon and pear.

I drank it with fish and salad on the recommendation of Noble Fine Liquor (cost £13) and am planning to get some more to drink in the sun over the Summer. It’s made by  a chap called Stefano Bellotti on a farm called ‘Cascina deglie Ulivi‘ in Northern Italy.

This is what someone who knows what they’re talking about has to say: Dedalus Wine review.

Here’s a nice blog post about a visit to the ‘Olive Farm’ where the wine comes from (it was intended to be an olive farm but ended up as a vineyard, apparently): Not Drinking Poison in Paris.

I’ve found an online retailer here that sell it for £11.75 before postage is added.
