I make some version of this sauce at least once a week-it’s really pretty easy and quick. Sometimes I use ground turkey, sometimes chicken and different veggies end up in the pot. Traditional Bolognese often has carrots, mushrooms, red wine, tomato paste, but I often use what I have on hand and what is quickest. This meal is FULL of veggies (think tons of #antioxidants and #fiber .) The #lycopene – great for skin, bone, and heart health – in the tomatoes is made more bioavailable (meaning it works better in the body) by being cooked with olive oil, since it’s fat-soluble.
Tag me if you try and ENJOY!
Don’t forget to make extra for leftovers. The sauce is even better the next day!

Combine cranberries, pears, coconut sugar, water, agave, orange juice, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until berries start to pop, about 5 minutes. Press berries against side of pan with wooden spoon and continue to cook until berries have broken down and sauce thickens to a jam-like consistency, about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and let cool for 30 minutes. Adjust consistency with water as needed. Stir in crystallized ginger.
Serve immediately or place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. Can be served cold or reheated.
