Slow Cooker Spaghetti Bolognaise Sauce

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"This is what you call a wickedly delicious, vegetarian spaghetti sauce which tastes like a bolognaise but is really soybeans. I also use this sauce with jacket potatoes (and if I'm really feeling naughty, add a bit of shredded mozzarella cheese on top), rice or even, 'cause it's so thick, just on its own. For optimum flavor use dried soya, if available."

I hate to say this, but this was by far the worst thing I've ever cooked. It was truly gross. I can't believe I put this in front of my children.

I am a vegetarian and I loved this. I miss the richness of a good meat sauce, and even my semi-carnivore husband liked this. I doctored up the spices a little, and used zucchini instead of okr...

Sorry to say, but this really was not even edible. Not sure what was wrong since I followed the recipe exactly.

I really, really wanted to like this . The other 2 1 star reviewer were right on.
