Bolognese is one of the most traditional and appreciated pasta recipes. To make this much-loved recipe accessible to all tastes, we made a vegan adaptation, using soy to replace meat.

Soy is a grain with a very high protein content and its granulated version has a texture similar to meat, and can be used together with various seasonings to replace ground beef in flavor and texture.

In addition, this vegan pasta bolognese version contains more vegetables, bringing a greater nutritional contribution to the dish. Finally, we use nutritional yeast to replace another important ingredient in all pasta recipes: Parmesan cheese. This ingredient is a great source of fiber, vitamins, especially B vitamins (especially important for vegetarian diets).

Recommendations for doshas:
Vata: this is a good meal for Vata dosha. Adding some ginger will increase the Agni(digestive fire)
Pitta: Is good for Pitta, but in moderation. Tomatoes increase all doshas, especially Pitta. Coriander and cardamon are good to add, avoid hot spices.
Kapha: eat in moderation, preferably for lunch. Pasta as well as tomatoes increase kapha energy and can bring heaviness to the body. Add some cayenne pepper and ginger.
