Lowering the tone.....FAST FOOD!

This is our just-got-back-from-a-walk-to-late-to-do-any-real-cooking staple but it's still fairly nutritious, super-quick and loved by Pip and Titch.

> Cook pasta= 50/50 brown and white.
> To any jar of yummy vegan pasta (tonight we had 'Discovery' tomato and roasted pepper) sauce add a block of grated tempeh and a can of tinned or several fresh (depending upon season) chopped plum tomatoes.
< Serve the sauce over the pasta topped with steamed brocolli spears and pan roasted cashews (or sunflower seeds for the cashew-hating Pip)

That's all folks!
Trying to upload a photo but it's proving trickier than preparing that meal.

Hey! Welcome to 'recipe of the day!' This sounds really yummy, and my kind of meal, ie, fast and healthy. I've not done tempeh- is it a bit like tofu? I'm sure I've eaten it, but never quite know how to prepare it. I think I've seen it in the local organic shops. We dont have a whole food shop, as such, just an expensive deli, and 2 expensive organic shops! We love those 'vegideli' sausages, but I wish I could get them somewhere cheaper. Not tried the Discovery sauce, either; the children don't seem to like any sauces on pasta apart from pesto.
