Rainbow Spirals With Spicy Tempeh

There is tempeh beneath the delicious flavors wafting through.

As the summer temperature raises on, light pasta meals are still a perfect way to end the night, especially with some easy tempeh crumble. All in all, it is also budget friendly and quick to prepare. I placed half a package of Trader Joe's three grain tempeh ($1.99), crumbling  in hot coconut oil and mixing in a variety of spices including fennel seed to give plain pasta an added kick.
