This cauliflower Bolognese sauce is not only super easy to make but it’s also incredibly healthy! Instead of ground meat, the recipe calls for cauliflower. Yes! Cauliflower! It’s such an incredible vegetable! As all my recipes, the cauliflower Bolognese is 100 % vegan. Besides, it’s also gluten-free and low in calories.
If someone asked me what my favorite vegetable was, I probably wouldn’t know the answer right away. But cauliflower would definitely be in my closer selection. It’s such a versatile vegetable and you can get so creative with it! Especially when cooking vegan recipes.
A couple of months ago, I made cauliflower hot wings that became a huge hit on Pinterest. They’re super easy to make and they’re the perfect comfort food. Or if you’re more into spicy-sweet food, you might prefer my vegan general tso’s cauliflower. They’re just as good as the fried version, while being so much healthier! And this time, I used cauliflower to make vegan Bolognese sauce! I told my hubby about it and he was pretty skeptical that this would turn out good, but he was more than surprised! It was not only good, it was soooo yummy!!! And the best thing is that it’s packed with nutrients at the same time. Welcome to cauliflower heaven!
What You Need For The Cauliflower Bolognese Sauce:
You don’t need a lot of ingredients for this vegan Bolognese sauce. Apart from the cauliflower, you might actually have everything in your pantry. And it’s ready in less than 15 minutes!

That’s it! Sounds pretty easy, right? As always, you can find the full ingredient list and the recipe instructions in a separate recipe box at the end of this post.
