Deliciousness without salt. Cumin and paprika work together to bring a warm and earthy depth to this ragù. The carrots paired with the onions balance the tomatoes and bring out the sweet undertones of the beef, while the parsley and the oregano give it fresh and vibrant flavor. You can serve on pasta or rice, but you should definitely try it with spaghetti squash or cauliflower rice.
Anthony, dad and grandpa to us, or Pappous as we used to call him, while he was on a strict no-sodium diet, he began experimenting with ingredients that would make flavorsome dishes without using salt. His aim with this ragù was to create his favorite bolognese sauce. He definitely succeeded, no one ever notices that the dish contains no salt. Over the years it has become one of the most requested dishes in our family.
You can find the recipe on page 220 of our cookbook Sea Salt and Honey.
