Cheatball Spaghetti, in Spicy Tomato Sauce

January 27, 2022

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 35 mins


2 Vegan Burgers

1 Tin of Black Beans (drained)

1 Red Chiili

2 Cloves of Garlic

1 tbsp Plain Flour

1 Handful of Herbs (I used Parsley, but Basil would also be fine)


1 Red Pepper

1 Red Onion

2 Red Chillies

4 Cloves of Garlic

500 g Red Passata

1 Lemon (optional)


1Start with the sauce. Toss the vegetables with oil and season with salt & pepper, then lay out on a baking tray and roast for around 20 minutes (or until they start to char).

2Whilst the vegetables roast, prepare the meatballs in a food processor by adding the black beans, garlic, chilli, herbs, and then slowly adding the vegan burgers (you may need to do this in batches depending on the quality of the food processor). Once the mixture is a paste, transfer to a bowl and mix in the flour.

3Roll the meatballs into equal balls and fry in a hot pan with a little oil until you get a nice brown colour. Once brown, pop them in the oven to warm through.

4Remove the roasted vegetables and carefully tip into a liquidiser, along with passata and blitz. Once the sauce is smooth and lump free, tip into a pan and heat through, seasoning to taste. Tip, if it's too spicey at this point, stir in the juice of the lemon to calm down the heat.

5Cook some spaghetti in hot salted water to packet instruction.

6Whilst the pasta cooks, finish the meatballs off in the sauce.

7Drain the pasta, then add to the sauce and meatballs (always add pasta to sauce - not sauce to pasta).

8Serve with a sprinkling of fresh herbs and enjoy!
