Meatless Monday: Ground Tempeh


One night last week I needed something quick and satisfying for dinner…Pasta. There’s something comforting about the traditional spaghetti and red sauce dinner that I crave every now and then. And rather than using ground beef, why not try tempeh? It gives you the same great protein but without all the saturated fat.

Tempeh usually comes packaged in a block - just crumble it up, saute it with onion, peppers and garlic, and simmer in your favorite red sauce (or simply chopped tomatoes). Throw in some basil, spinach and chopped olives and you’ve got yourself a hearty, meat-free pasta sauce.

You could also replace ground meat with tempeh in anything you can think of - meatballs, meatloaf, stuffed peppers (I have a great stuffed pepper recipe), etc. Let your creativity take you away!
