Introduction

A Bolognese that will help lower your cholesterol and keep your heart healthy instead of the other way around? It is indeed possible with this lentil Bolognese. Lentils are great for heart health since they are so high in fiber, and the soluble fiber in particular can help lower your cholesterol.

Preparation

Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onions. Cook for a few minutes until starting to soften and then add the garlic, carrots, and celery. Season with sea salt, black pepper, and oregano to taste.
Add the lentils, chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes until the lentils and vegetables are soft.
Fill a large pot with plenty of cold water, add a little salt to the water for seasoning and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the spaghetti and cook it for about 10-12 minutes. Retire from the heat and drain.
For the Parmesan cashew cheese, soak the cashews for at least 2 hours, drain them and pulse them in a food processor with the salt and nutritional yeast.
Serve the spaghetti on a plate, add the sauce over it and top the dish with some cashew Parmesan.
