  • 1 brown onion peeled
  • 2 garlic peeled
  • 160 g button mushrooms
  • 1 red capsicum (pepper) seeds removed
  • 1 carrot trimmed
  • 2 celery
  • ¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh basil roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 500 g lean beef mince
  • cup tomato paste 85ml
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 3 cups SunRice Low GI Brown Rice cooked
  • 4 eggs
  • 400 ml tomato passata
  • 90 g parmesan cheese grated
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to serve


  • Heat oven to 180C. If you have a food processor then simply blitz the brown onion, garlic, mushrooms, red capsicum, carrot, celery, parsley and basil until it is minced, this will save you on chopping time. If you don’t have a food processor, then finely chop all ingredients.
  • Heat a large (30cm diameter round preferably) oven proof fry pan* on medium heat and add extra virgin olive oil to coat, followed by the veggie mince. Cover and cook 6-8 minutes to soften all the veggies. Add mince, and cook a further 5-6 minutes to brown the meat. Remove from heat, add tomato paste, dried oregano, cooked rice, season with sea salt and black pepper and toss.
  • Whisk eggs in a separate bowl and stir through the bolognese, then use the back of your spoon to give the top of the pie an even surface. Spread tomato passata over the top of the pie and finish with grated parmesan. Bake in oven 30-40 minutes. Stand for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.


Sneaking extra vegetables including mushrooms, capsicum, carrot, celery and of course using SunRice Low GI Rice has supercharged the fibre content of this dish. One serve provides approximately 6.6g or 22% of the recommended daily intake for fibre.
