  • 1 cup tempeh
  • 4 ounce pasta, shapes
  • 1 medium bell pepper, red
  • 2 cup sliced mushrooms, white
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 1/2 cup spaghetti or marinara sauce

Serve With

  • 2 cup grapes


  • Steam tempeh for 10 minutes (this helps remove the "bitter" taste). Let cool enough to touch, then crumble.
  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, dice bell pepper, slice mushrooms, and mince garlic.
  • In a large pan over medium heat, sauté the tempeh, mushrooms, peppers, and garlic for about 8 minutes until veggies soften (add a bit of olive oil to the pan if necessary/desired).
  • Reduce heat to med-low and pour in pasta sauce. Cook for 10 minutes until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  • Spoon sauce over cooked pasta. Serve with grapes on the side.
