Spaghetti (tempeh) Bolognese

March 26, 2017
Winner, winner, PLANT-BASED dinner! 
.
I spent all day today working on content for my new website that will support my soon-to-be-released @hayhouseinc book, I completely forgot to visit the markets to stock up on food for dinner, whoops ‍♀️
.
Luckily, I'm a girl whose eyes are bigger than her stomach! I rarely run out of food and can always pull something delish together with whatever is lying around in my fridge 
.
Case and point: the plant-based, pasta-free yummy spaghetti bolognese pictured above  In place of pasta, I spiralized the most wonderfully crisp daikon radish a friend (and local farmer) gifted me during the week.
.
To create the bolognese, I combined BPA-free tinned organic tomatoes with a bunch of spices and added diced courgette, carrots and last but not least, the most AMAZING organic tempeh I have ever tasted 
.
My love for organic tempeh first started when I began to rebuild my body and re-establish my health. Tempeh was something I was advised by my holistic doctor to factor into my diet because it can:
.
✨help increase bone density
.
✨promote muscle recovery
.
✨be a wonderful source of protein - matching animal protein almost gram for gram
.
✨help replenish vitamins and minerals within the body - it contains high levels of vitamins B5, B6, B3 and B2
.
✨support your gut garden, as it's essentially fermented soybeans, so it's LOADED with good probiotics
.
In terms of best brands to try:
.
Primasoy from @letsbenatural_healthyliving
.
@barrys_tempeh
.
 Impulse Organics from @planetorganic
.
I'll be sharing more recipes featuring tempeh soon, so stay tuned - and have a great weekend!✌
