thermomix spaghetti bololgnese I’m re-doing an old spaghetti Bolognese recipe that I added a few years ago because, well, it’s spag bol, and it’s delicious and it needs some more attention.

Spag Bol is a little sentimental for me as it was the first dish that Mr D ever cooked me.  We weren’t even dating back then either.  I was all broken hearted after just coming out of a messy break-up and he emailed me out of the blue just saying “Hey, I heard things with J didn’t work out.  Do you fancy coming over for a Spag Bol and you tell me all about what bastards men are!’  Without even realising it, I think he might have won my heart there and then.

Anyway back to the spag bol.  This is a good one and it’s thermomix so easy to make too.  I’m not sure what the best part is – the fact that I don’t have to stir the sauce over a hot stove (and risk burning the bottom of the pot) or the fact that I can disguise so many veggies in it without the kids knowing??

Easy, delicious and packed full of veggies. This spaghetti bolognese will easily become one of your go to week night dinners that everyone will love.
Recipe type: Thermomix
Serves: serves 6
  • 1 onion
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 500g veggies of your choice (I use carrots, sweet potatoes, zucchini, broccoli and mushrooms)
  • 500g beef mince
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 heaped tbs vegetable stock paste
  • 150g tomato paste
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • pinch of sugar
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • Pasta of choice (I use spaghetti)
  • Cheese for topping
  1. Chop the onion and garlic for 5 seconds on speed 7.
  2. Add the oil and saute for 3 minutes at 100 degrees, speed 1.
  3. Add all the veggies and chop for 5 seconds on speed 7. Scrape down the sides.
  4. Add the mince and stir it all together for 5 seconds on revere speed 3.
  5. Cook for 10 minutes on varoma, reverse speed soft.
  6. Add all the remaining ingredients and cook for a further 20 minutes on 100 degrees, reverse speed soft. Replace the MC with the basket to stop the sauce from spattering everywhere while cooking.
  7. Serve on top of a bed of pasta, or spinach leaves if you're looking for a carb free option.
  8. Enjoy.
This recipe is freezable.


I hope you enjoy it and you can give yourself a high five for getting so many veggies into the kids.  Mine think there are just tomatoes in there and I’m fine with that!!

Are you a veggie smuggler?

  1. Yum! I have never put balsamic vinegar in my spag bol – but I certainly will be now!!! I love that you grate cheese onto the top of your too. This was my fave dinner as a kid and I still love it to bits! I’ve just bookmarked this so I can come back during the week and make it. Love, love, love your Thermomix recipes! xx

    • I saw it once on a Jamie Oliver cooking show and I’ve added it ever since – it’s really yummy!! Thank you SO much for your lovely comment too xxx

  2. I’m a big veggie smuggler too and this recipe looks perfect! My boys just LOVE a good spag bol – thanks for the balsamic vinegar tip, can’t wait to try this next time we make it. Thank you for linking up with us for Fabulous Foodie Fridays, I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

    • You can’t go wrong with a good spag bol can you!! I love linking up with you guys on a Friday – it gives me such good inspiration for the weekend x

  3. Thank You!!! I just made this and it was the best thermie spag bol I have made. Everyone cleaned their plates! I added some fresh herbs to mine as well. So delicious. Thank you, I will definitely cook this again!

  4. We put balsamic in our spag bol too! I’ve never made spag bol in the Thermomix because I’m so scared it will be mushy but this looks so good I might have to give it a go. I’m a sucker for some veggie smuggling!

  5. Interesting, never had sweet potato ina spag bowl before. I do balsamic to bt only if I’m out of wine. Lol
    I got my MIL to teach me the funaments of her pasta sauce. The only different is I add about the same weight in vege as meat… Gotta love hiding those veg.
    I also find eggplant gives it such a nice flavour, I use only a small one.
    I don’t have a thermo mix {sigh} but instead cook veg & meat pop in slow cooker with passatta etc & let it do its thing all day.
    Thanks for linking up to Your Weekly Feed on Sunday. x

  6. Can I use fresh tomato instead of tinned ? Would quantity be same eg 400g fresh tomato chopped

    • Yes of course you can Monique. I”m sure it will be delicious. Use the same amount but you may just need to add a little more water at the end. xx

      • I just added 400g of my home grown tomatoes cut in half and they broke down nicely in the sauce 🙂

  7. Wow! made this last night,my 500g of veges was broccoli, carrot, mushrooms and capsicum and I threw in 2 fresh basil leaves. Sensational taste and so very easy, I love how you can throw it all in and then get the dishes done, thanks for sharing this recipee.

  8. I’ve tried a few bolongnaise recipes since getting my Thermomix a year ago, and this is hands-down the best one.

  9. I dont like spaghetti bolognese at all. But my family does. I have to say my house smells amazing and i snuck a taste. This tecioe is delicious. Cant wait to serve this up. I will fe taking a big plate of this. Thanks for changing my mind on spaghetti bolognese.

  10. My kids love this and have no idea what I put in it…I love it too :)…easy to cook. I have made it a few times now,so thought I should check out what other recipes you may have..Thankyou, Traci

  11. Hi I don’t have veg stock concentrate. Is it as good without it can I use normal veg stick liquid? Thanks so much

  12. My first time making this recipe today and what a success! This was the best, healthiest spaghetti bolognese I’ve ever had. I can’t believe that the veggies made the meal so nice and thick and extremely tasty. Thank you so much for this recipe.

  13. I know this post was from 2014 but have just come across your website. Love the name😂 I’m a newbie Thermomixer and wondered what I’’d need to change if I want red wine in the Spaghetti Bol. No kiddies in our house just 3 hungry adults!!

  14. What a delicious and healthy way to make Spag Bol. The 2 year old loved it not surprisingly! I used spiral pasta

  15. It was delicious! I will definitely repeat it! I used celery sticks, zucchini and carrots. Thank you very much, I found this website by accidant but now I see I have to look through your other thermomix recipes !

  16. Best thermomix bolognaise !!
    Tastes as good as my slow cooked one 🙂
    My daughter told me the other night that she loved this spaghetti because it had no vegetables.. HA HA
    3 X Zucchini & 2 X carrots later

  17. I have my thermo for 3 years just starting to use absolutely love this recipe . I am learning to use it for when we go traveling in the caravan so I can eliminate a lot unnecessary cooking implements not required .thankyou

  18. Just tried this recipe and yum!!! I normally find spagetti bolonaise quite a heavy oily meal but this one was packed pull of flavour but didn’t leave that oily feel after it was eaten. We used Turkey mince and I added a little bit of italian herbs and some tomato sauce as the hubby’s tastebuds aren’t very strong and he ended up licking the bowl
    Thanks so much !

  19. Couldnt find a recipe on Cookidoo app so googled and your recipe came up!!! Wow we loved it. Thanks so much. My husband loved the addition of balsamic!!! Two big thumbs up from a London TM6 user!!!!

  20. I make this almost weekly and it’s a hit every time! Love the addition of balsamic vinegar – delicious!

  21. delicious! had zucchini, broccoli, carrot, celery, sweet potato for the veggies portion. I never thought to balance out our family of 6’s spa bol with 1/2 veggies instead of 1kg mince!! thanks! and the balsamic – what a touch. thank you for an awesome recipe

  22. This is def my fav spat bol and my kids all love it too. Question though, i ha e run out of veg stock paste and currently not at home so don’t have thermo handy to make more. What could I substitute this with? Just normal stock?

  23. This was absolutely incredible! I just white zucchini, sweet potato and capsicum. I also cooked my mine in the basket for the first 20 mins, adding it to the sauce for the last 10. It was just brilliant. Really lovely.. not watery. Such a great taste and much healthier sauce than we usually have with all the vegies. Thanks for the great recipe

  24. Can you explain step 6 abit further for me? I have only just recently got my machine and I’m not quite understanding what to do.

  25. I was really confused by this recipe. Nothing mixed at all? In the end I had a huge chunk of mince cooked but sitting there together in a pile. Next to it was the veg stock paste and next to that the tomato paste. Nothing mixed? I had to who’s it by all up and in about 10 seconds it was sauce looking. But I found this very strange. I might try it again but with a different mix speed, not the reverse soft.
