Tomato artichoke tempeh sauce – recipe

Tomato artichoke tempeh sauce – recipe

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.


  1. Lots of tomatoes and lots of artichokes. Looks tasty!Hope you’re well.

  2. That looks delicious! I’d put some parmesan cheese on the top of mine. :) (I’m a droolin’ fool for cheese)

  3. Yum! I’ll have to try this out sometime. Thanks!

  4. oo I wish I had a taste for artichokes!
    I’ve never tried tempeh with pasta and wanted to a long time ago..hmm..sounds great! Do you think it would still be tasty sans artichokes?

  5. Glad some of you think it looks good. I was wondering if everyone would be like – what the heck was she thinking?! hehe.

    Isil – Yes, I seem to finally be better. :)

    Amy – I think the cheese would be good on top, but I had it w/o and I still enjoyed it.

    Rowan – No prob. Let me know how you like it.

    Jess – I think it would still be tasty w/o the artichokes, but I really them in it.

  6. 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.

  7. hey sara, thanks for stopping by. :) glad you liked the hummus. you can probably find tempeh at your local grocery store. just look in the refrigerated section by the tofu. :)
