Making Bolognese sauce in the Soup Chef is fast, and you can make it as smooth as you like with the Smooth+ function in the final step.
Serve over cooked pasta for a quick veggie meal or combine with browned mince for a classic Spaghetti Bolognese.
2 tbsp olive or cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
2 celery sticks, chopped
1 carrot, peeled and chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 x 400g cans of chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp oregano
Red wine (optional)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Select the SAUTE function, add the oil and allow to heat. Add the onion, celery, carrot and garlic and stir regularly for ~5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften.
Cancel the SAUTE function, then add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. To save time you can leave the sauté step out, but we would recommend using this feature to maximise flavour.
Add a splash of water (or red wine if using) to take the liquid up to the MIN line, then put the lid on and select the CHUNKY function.
When the program has finished, open and close the lid to reset your Soup Chef. Put the lid back on and pulse the SMOOTH+ function ~5 times, then remove the lid and season to taste before serving.
