How to make lentil bolognese?

Lightly heat the water/broth/oil in the bottom of the pot. Add finely chopped onion and celery, grated carrot and finely chopped garlic. Heat the mixture for about 3 minutes until the onion becomes glassy. If frying with water or broth, reduce the temperature or add water if necessary.

Add pre-rinsed lentils, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, broth, bay leaves, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring everything to a boil for a moment, then lower the heat and let it simmer with the lid on for about 30 minutes, until the lentils are soft.

Add chopped fresh basil and serve with zucchini noodles. Sprinkle with grated Brazil nut crumbs, if desired.
