Meaty lentils, finely chopped mushrooms and just the right amount of garlic make for a toothsome, tangy spaghetti sauce that tastes like it simmered on the stove all day. Meat-free, you say? Do yourself a favour and don’t even mention it.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. In a large non-stick skillet over high heat, brown the mushrooms, onion and garlic in the oil. Transfer to the slow cooker.
  2. Add the vegetables, lentils, tomato sauce and broth. Season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours. It can be maintained on Warm for up to 8 hours.
  3. Delicious over pasta, but also with stuffed eggplant or baked potatoes.
