MorningStar Farms – Vegetarian Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe

Based on research released by MorningStar Farms, nearly half of Australians are considering adding more plant-based meals into their diets in the next 12 months – as a result, MorningStar Farms (who have been producing meat-free alternatives in the US for over 40 years) have recently launched their range of plant-based meat alternatives in Australia.

We recently surveyed the team here at The Grocery Geek and without any doubt a comforting bowl of Spaghetti Bolognese was the team favourite… so after speaking with the team at MorningStar Farms, we thought we would share with you their delicious recipe for you to try at home!

MorningStar Farms Grillers Classic Mince is available from Coles for ∼$8.00, each pack contains 5.2 servings (perfect for family recipes) and can be cooked straight from frozen.

  1. In a large pot on medium heat, fry the garlic, onion, celery, carrot, basil and bay leaf in olive oil until fragrant (2 mins).
  2. To this, add MorningStar Farms® Grillers Classic Veggie Mince and sauté for 3-5 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
