  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 medium mushrooms diced fairly small
  • 100 g walnuts
  • 3 large tomatoes diced
  • 100 g cherry tomatoes ~12, halved
  • 100 ml vegetable stock ~1/3 cup
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • Black pepper
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • To serve: spaghetti optional, grated cheese


  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan, and add the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring regularly, until soft.
  • Meanwhile, add the walnuts to a food processor, and pulse a few times until the walnuts are coarsely ground.
  • Add the walnuts to the mushroom mixture, along with the remaining ingredients. Turn the heat up a little, and simmer gently for around 10 minutes, until the tomatoes have broken down and the mixture is at your desired consistency. Serve with spaghetti and grated cheese if desired.
