…for pasta with mushroom bolognese sauce:
Clean mushrooms & roughly break into small pieces with your hands. Peel off the onion & garlic & chop finely. Peel/clean the leek, carrot & celeriac & chop as finely/small as possible.
Heat up a large pan with a good dash of oil & brown the mushrooms over medium to high heat for 2 – 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the prepared vegetables & fry for another 3 – 4 minutes. When that’s done, stir in 1 heaping tablespoon of tomato paste & allow to roast briefly.
Next, deglaze everything with 75 milliliters of soy sauce & allow the soy sauce to boil down almost completely while stirring. Then pour in 750 milliliters of pureed tomatoes and 200 milliliters of water, also add 1 tablespoon of Italian herbs, stir everything well, bring to a boil & simmer gently over low heat for about 7 – 8 minutes.
While the sauce is simmering, bring a large pot with salted water to a boil & cook the pasta in it for 7 – 8 minutes or according to the package instructions, then drain over a pasta strainer. Finally, season the sauce with a good pinch of salt, sugar & pepper to taste & then remove from the stove.
Dish up the done pasta on deep plates & serve with a few ladles of veggie mushroom bolognese sauce. Finally garnish with a little basil and serve. Have fun cooking!
