High protein vegan spaghetti bolognese

I just love experimenting with different ingredients to see how we can substitute meat and up our protein intake, especially on a gym day. This dish is so easy to make and very high in protein and fiber!

Obviously you can substitute this high protein spaghetti for wholemeal spaghetti, but if you really want that protein kick then get to the health food store and get this amazing high protein, high fiber spaghetti! A serving of this spaghetti has a whopping 41g of protein.

makes: 4-5 servings
prep time: 5 min
cook time: 10 min
total time: 15 min


  • 2/3 packet (150g, dry) edamame or black bean spaghetti
  • 100g (dry) organic TVP mince (really opt for the organic version here as it is important to have the TVP made from non GMO, organic soy beans)
  • 4 cups of (homemade) pasta sauce
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Optional: add some fresh basil, rocket salad, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes…



Boil water in a pot.

In the meanwhile, add the TVP mince in a bowl and cover with some hot water. Add  a splash of Worcestershire sauce or tamari. Let this sit for about 5 minutes.
Cook the spaghetti for 7-8 minutes.

Add the sauce to a pot and let it simmer over low heat. After 5 minutes, add the TVP mince and stir well.

Serve immediately with some nutritional yeast (as a parmasan substitute) and enjoy!
