“Spaghetti” bolognese – The LCHF version

LCHF Pasta alternative

Instead of eating pasta we usually use zoodles, which is grated zucchini so it looks like spaghetti. I got a bit over it and wanted to try something different so I tried cabbage instead. When I mentioned this to David he was very hesitant. Cabbage is pretty gross – it brings up images of it being steamed to a green slimy mush. I have discovered a yummy way of making it – frying it in butter. I did this to make the “spaghetti” part of the meal.

For the bolognese part you need;

  • 1 x mince meat punnet
  • 1 x tin tomatos
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  •  half a handful of fresh herbs such as basil, thyme etc.
  • 1/2 onion chopped

Fry onion in butter or coconut oil until transparent, add mince and fry until brown. Add tomatoes, cinnamon, herbs and simmer for about 20 minutes. Sometimes I add some cream to make it more decadent.

For the “spaghetti” you need;

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 a cabbage cut into ribbons

Heat butter in pan and add the cabbage ribbons. Fry until soft.

Once the cabbage is done serve the “pasta”dish in bowls.

OM NOM NOM! Happy cooking!
