Globe Marrow Bolognese



Prep. time

30 minutes

Cooking time

20-30 minutes


  • 250g Minced beef
  • 200g Chopped Tomatoes
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Handful of cheese (any kind, depending on your preference) 
  • 1 Globe marrow 
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 1 Beef stock cube 
  • Sprinkle of mixed herbs
  • 4-5 Button mushrooms 
  • 1 Carrot, diced or grated
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 250g Minced beef


  • First, pre-heat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4.
  • Cut the globe marrow in 2 and hollow out the seeds, you can either dry these out in the greenhouse or throw them away.
  • To make the bolognese, start frying off the onion, carrot and mushrooms with the olive oil on a medium heat until they’re soft. Then add the beef, fry this off until brown.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, herbs, bay leaf, beef stock cube and anything else you’d think would add to the bolognese mixture.  I think every household has their own preferred method of making a bolognese sauce, just go with what works for you.  Simmer for around 10 minutes.
  • Pour the bolognese into the globe marrows and top off with a generous handful of cheese, bake in the oven for around 15 to 20 mins or until golden brown.

Serve with a salad and enjoy!
