1 adult, 2 children 1 infant (with leftovers for my family but each person different)
- Heat a saucepan over a medium heat with 2-3 tablespoons of oil and add the onion and garlic. Cook without colouring for a few minutes, then add The Meatless Farm Co mince and season with salt and pepper.
- Cook The Meatless Farm Co mince until its browned all over, then stir in the tomato purée, followed by the tinned tomatoes and season to taste.
- Bring to a boil then let simmer for around 10 minutes – add a splash of water or vegetable stock if it is looking a bit dry.
- Meanwhile, bring a large pan of seasoned water to the boil and add the pasta. Stir to stop the pasta from sticking and cook for 7–10 minutes.
- When it is fully cooked, drain in a colander and drizzle with a little olive oil to prevent the spaghetti from sticking together.
- Serve and enjoy!

Good for planet…
A big amount can be achieved if you choose meatless food products, for example, did you know that if you make the easy switch to this meat free mince you will be saving the amount of water equivalent to a long shower and the carbon footprint equivalent to going for a long drive!
Great for healthy lifestyle…
Plant based diets are typically higher in fibre and was, help people feel full longer, and they usually contain a higher percentage of fruits and vegetables which are less calorie-dense than other foods with similar volume.
Plant-based diets have been linked to a number of health benefits, including reducing your risk of heart disease, certain cancers, obesity, diabetes and cognitive decline.
“We created our meatless mince with everyone in mind – not just vegetarians and vegans, but flexitarians and meat eaters, too. We believe that we have created a great alternative to beef mince, which is #. We understand that we may not be for everyone, but we will always be dedicated to making fresh plant-based meat alternatives that above all taste delicious, because that’s what’s important!”
