Special thanks to my friend Eva who tried this bolognese sauce before. She tried this recipe and thought it would be a perfect fit for my cooking videos. If you are like me and have always nuts at home but seldom meat, then this high fiber recipe comes really handy.

Don’t go overboard with this easy nut bolognese!

This clean eating bolognese sauce recipe comes with a high satiation effect duet to the fiber in nuts and whole grain pasta but it is of course not “light”. Yes, nut’s fat is healthy fat and yet our hips don’t differentiate between unhealthy and healthy fats.
Too much is too much!

So, if you are watching your weight you better stick to one meal portion and eat e.g. a green salad as a starter;)
