turkey bolognese


I’m a sucker for any bolognese recipes. It’s lifted from my favourite cookbook of 2010, Leon 2. The appeal of this one is in the turkey mince, both healthy and cheap. It’s never going to replace ‘proper’ bolognese but it’s dead easy, very tasty and freezes like a dream. Give it a try.

Turkey bolognese:

1 onion, finely diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

500g turkey mince

250g mushrooms, sliced

2 tins of tomatoes

Big glass of white wine

500ml chicken stock



  1. In a large casserole pan, fry some onion in a little oil. When tender add the garlic and turkey and fry until browned.
  2. Add the mushrooms, fry for a minute then add the tomatoes, wine and stock. Pop the lid on and simmer gently for an hour and a half.
  3. When it’s ready, cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions. Toss with the mince mix and grate over some fresh parmesan to serve.
