Secret Superfood Bolognese

BY Monica Yates

This is the first recipe I have made with liver and I am so impressed! I was able to hide the taste (although it did smell a bit funny) and I actually LOVED it. The trick here is to definitely let the sauce simmer for as long as you can so the flavours go crazy and you have a super tasty sauce. If you aren’t worried about fructose, then, by all means, swap the red capsicum sauce out for a tomato sauce (without added sugar).

  • 1kg beef mince and liver (get your butcher to put this together for you in a ratio of 95% beef mince and 5% liver… I actually got 80% beef 15% beef fat and 5% liver)
  • Coconut oil for frying
  • 1 brown onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 2 zucchinis, diced
  • 150g mushrooms, thinly chopped
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 cups Red capsicum sauce
  • Zucchinis for spiralizing
  • Pesto to serve
  • Parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast to serve
  1. Heat the coconut oil in a medium frypan and saute the onion, garlic and carrots.
  2. Add the beef mince/liver and brown.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients and let simmer for as long as possible. (I like mine to simmer for about an hour or two so the flavour is really bursting but if you don’t have that long don’t worry)
  4. When you are ready to eat, zoodle your zucchinis and sautee them in a separate fry pan with a knob of coconut oil for 3 minutes or until just tender. (depending on the thickness of your zoodles)…Alternatively, you can microwave them for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Serve the bolognese sauce with a BIG bowl of zoodles and cover with pesto to serve! Sprinkle with parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast
