Delicious & Easy To Make Vegan Spaghetti Bolognese Pastries

Kira Simpson

I’m not vegan. I’m not even vegetarian. If I had to put a label on my eating habits it would be a reducetarian.

I follow a mostly plant based diet supplemented by mostly local, pasture raised animal produce 2-3 times a week.

I’m also a lazy cook and will take shortcuts wherever I can. So when Whirlpool asked if I would like to test out their new Crisp N’ Grill convection oven, I was keen to make a vegan recipe which was quick, easy and relatively good for me.

I used the grill plate which came with the oven and these tasty little parcels were ready in just 12 minutes.

Throw in a simple salad and you have yourself a delicious and easy to make vegan meal perfect for lunch or dinner. Watch the video below.
