“I’m going to make a vegan bolognese. I’ve grown up having bolognese and I just thought that coming on here I just wanted to do something a bit more mindful,” Rossdale tells PEOPLE. “Making vegan bolognese is the future.”
He makes his pasta with semolina flour, 00 flour, salt, and red palm oil. “You can use olive oil,” says Rossdale. “But this is red palm oil. It’s from Eritrea or Egypt, it’s crazy, right, but it gives a little color.” He adds water to the dough to form it into pasta.
And for the bolognese? Rossdale swaps out butter for vegan butter and uses vegan beef in place of traditional beef. He makes sure all the vegetables are softened while cooking to make sure the flavors come together.
“Obviously the carrots take a lot longer and you don’t want crunchy carrots in a bolognese,” says Rossdale. “And so this for me, even when I was making the regular one, is taking time with this because that’s how you bring out the sweetness of everything.”
He uses rosemary, salt, spices, and vegan butter alongside tomato paste, garlic, red wine, and garlic. YUM!

“No animals were hurt in the construction of this dish,” says Rossdale. “Thank you so much for joining me here on this voyage of discovery of no egg pasta, and a vegan bolognese. Thank you for all the support and for all the love for Bush for all these years.”
Rossdale has been working to cut down his meat consumption. He told Men’s Health in 2020, “Meat is just not as good to us as we’re led to believe. We’re really finding ways to fix the planet up. For my kids’ kids, and their kids, maybe it’s good for us all to be mindful. The world’s not going to go vegan, but we certainly can change our ways.”
