Got a few minutes and want something delicious and totally nourishing for dinner? Try this quick vegan chickpea bolognese sauce over your favorite pasta! Chopping the chickpeas gives the sauce a finer texture that’s easier to eat with noodles. Feel free to leave this step out, however, if you’d rather eat them whole. This bolognese is completely plant-based and loaded with veggie goodness to make you feel awesome. Imagine that after eating a big bowl of pasta!

Recipe from Carolyn’s Pantry

chickpea bolognese

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups diced red onion
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed, drained, and chopped (1½ cups)
  • 1 medium carrot, cut into ¼-inch dice
  • 1 cup mushrooms (any kind you like), cut into ¼-inch dice
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes (1½ cups)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce (1½ cups)
  • ½ tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • Sea salt
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice penne or fusilli pasta (or any other whole-grain pasta)

Instructions

  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat, add the red onions, garlic, chickpeas, carrots, and a dash of salt. Sauté the vegetables for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are slightly translucent. Add water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, as needed, to keep vegetables from sticking to the pan.
  2. Add the mushrooms and sauté for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano, and parsley. Sauté for 2 more minutes, taste and adjust seasoning.
  4. Pour as much of the sauce as you like over the pasta and eat up—it's all fantastic for you and tastes even better.

about the author

Carolyn Yachanin

Carolyn grew up a lover of nature and cooking in Northern California, but as an adult gravitated toward plant-based eating as a way to heal her food intolerances naturally. She couldn’t find recipes colorful enough to make her smile or easy enough to make in a snap, so she decided to create her own. Carolyn started the Carolyn’s Pantry blog in 2016 and has been a featured author with Forks Over Knives, Kris Carr, Whole Foods, Prevention magazine, and more. Her recipes now live on the blog at Copina Co, her plant-based beauty and wellness company.
