Spaghetti with Ground Tempeh

I love Tempeh. People in Asia – particularly Indonesia – have been eating tempeh for hundreds of years. It comes from soybeans mixed with another grain like barley or rice and is super high in protein. You can make it at home, but I probably never will, so we buy it packaged:

There are many different ways to cook and prepare tempeh. One night this week, Matt grated two packages of tempeh using a hand grater and put it in a spaghetti sauce. Here it is grated (aka “ground”) and sautéing with garlic and onion:

This was a dish that Matt put together on his known, so I can’t link to a recipe because it is in his head. But some of the other ingredients in the sauce were:

  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tbs tomato paste
  • black olives, chopped
  • roasted red pepper, chopped
  • Italian seasoning
  • nutritional yeast to sprinkle on top

It was enough for two dinners and two lunches. Perfect!
