Tomato artichoke tempeh sauce – recipe February 12, 2006

Filed under: Food,Pictures,Recipes,Vegetarian — amygeekgrl @ 11:38 pm

I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner last Thursday. I had some tempeh that I wanted to use, but wasn’t sure how to prepare it. After looking through the cupboards, I decided to throw this sauce together, totally unsure about how it would turn out. It was actually quite tasty and I think I’ll make it again sometime.
Here’s roughly what I did.

Tomato artichoke tempeh sauce with fettucine

Saute 3 cloves minced garlic in 2T olive oil.
Stir in cut up tempeh and saute until golden brown.
Add in 1 14 oz. can of quartered artichoke hearts (chopped up).
Add in 1 28 oz. can or organic ground peeled tomatoes.
Add in 2 T dried basil.
Cook until heated through.
Meanwhile, prepare fettucine (or other pasta) according to package directions.
Top pasta with sauce and serve.

    Hi, I’m not sure how I got to your blog but I really like it. I made the Hummus you made the other day and it was good. This dish looks really good but I don’t know if I can find tempeh where I live.
