Tofu Vege Bolognese Sauce (Vegan)

Vegan Gluten-free Tofu Vege Bolognese Sauce

This is one of my favourite dishes that has a kind of classic status in my kitchen. I’m quite proud of it because it seems to evolve into a tastier dish with each year that passes.

So this is the latest version I have created of this vegan, gluten-free tofu bolognese. It uses some olives and dried tomatoes, which reduce the need for salt. Paprika and dried herbs are a must! But see for yourself :)
