Dolmio launches vegan bolognese sauces complete with plant-based mincemeat that can be added to a range of dishes such as chillis and pasta dishes.
Making it easier for everyone to rustle up a tasty vegan meal, Dolmio has launched a new range of ready-made plant-based bolognese sauces that can be added to a range of dishes such as chillis and pasta dishes.
The pre-packaged sauces with vegan mincemeat are made from a blend of soy protein and contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
Available in two varieties, the Dolmio Plant Based Bolognese range includes a Fiery Chilli, Pepper and Beans which the company describes as “a spicy, richly flavoured sauce combining ripe tomatoes, savoury herbs & spices, pepper, beans and delicious pieces of meat-free mince.”
There’s also Fragrant Basil and Carrots, described as “a tasty, aromatic sauce combining ripe tomatoes, savoury herbs & spices, basil and carrots with delicious pieces of meat-free mince.”
According to the brand, which is owned by Mars Incorporated, they are “naturally high in plant protein” as well as being high in fibre (3.5g per serving) and are ready to eat in just 45 seconds for those looking for a nutritious meal in a hurry.
The plant-based bolognese sauces are priced at £1.64 and are currently being rolled out at Ocado, Tesco and Morrisons supermarkets in the UK this month with further retailers planning to list the product over the summer.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Rob Hollis, Marketing Manager, Dolmio said: “We’re incredibly excited to be launching Dolmio® Plant Based Bolognese to add to our range. Spaghetti Bolognese is one of the UK’s favourite meals, especially for a convenient, healthy mid-week meal.
“Traditionally cooked with meat, it is equally delicious when made with a meat alternative, or with just veg and our current range of sauces are perfect for making a Bolognese whichever way you prefer it.
“With our increasingly busy lives and the increased focus on plant-based eating, we believe that now is the perfect time to make it just that little bit easier to enjoy a plant-based Bolognese meal with our new range of Dolmio® products.”
