Roasted Tempeh and Vegetable Linguine
If you love sweet and spicy, vibrant and bold, Asian-inspired flavors, have I got a bowlful for you!
Roasted tempeh and turnips, shiitakes and red bell peppers, scallions, cabbage, kale, and radishes… all tossed together in a spicy sriracha hoisin sauce.
Oh, and there’s pasta in there, too because #ieatcarbs.
The base of this recipe is simple which makes it super easy to customize with whatever veggies you have on hand.
For example, the first step is roasting cubed tempeh and turnips together. Don’t have a turnip in the fridge? No problem; use a potato.
Don’t have kale or cabbage; sub Brussels sprouts. Want to kick up the heat? Top with a drizzle of sriracha sauce.
See what I mean? Super flexible.
I’m not sure if this qualifies as a salad with pasta or a pasta with veggies but either way, it’s all good.
