Healthy Spaghetti Bolognese

Friday carb load before the big game!

Except that we overeat and the big game becomes the big lame.

“I got a stitch,” or that really heavy in the guts feeling are a thing of the past with our delicious, light spag-bol recipe that tastes exactly like the nasty version!



  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 carrots, finely diced
  • 10 mushrooms, finely diced
  • 1 glove garlic
  • 500g lean grass fed beef mince (or kangaroo for extra leanness!)
  • 2 – 3 generous tablespoons no salt tomato paste
  • 4 diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1⁄2 cup fresh basil
  • 1⁄2 cup fresh oregano


  1. Sauté the onion, garlic, carrot and mushrooms in a little olive oil over medium heat until softened.
  2. Add the beef and cook for 5 – 10 minutes until browned.
  3. Stir through the tomato paste and cook for about 3 more minutes.
  4. Add tomato and paprika.
  5. Cover the pot and bubble over a low heat for 30minutes until the sauce is thick and rich
  6. For the last 10 minutes, throw in the basil and oregano
  7. Serve over our zucchini spaghetti
