This February, fall in love with this healthy Valentine meal! It is a Pretty in Pink Spaghetti dish made with (pink) pasta, beets and crumbled tempeh. Healthy, vegan and pink because of the incredibly beautiful colored beets. Use extra beet root powder to make the colors really pop!
I really feel like red and pink are the colors of love. Whether it is love between two partners or between friends, sisters, mothers and daughters. So much is possible in the kitchen with these amazing colors. And how to express you love better than with delicious food? Sure, showering your lover with chocolates is sweet but you also have to eat something substantial and fulfilling at your romantic dinner right? With pink pasta you will say ‘I love you and I love you healthy’, in a sweet way. Eyes filled with love guaranteed 😉
Also this dish requires minimal effort. You can use any kind of pasta you prefer. To make it very easy, you can use pre-cooked beets. These are so convenient to use in this dish. Make sure you add lovely tomatoes too. I used cherry tomatoes because I really like the sweet taste. Protein packed tempeh fills the bellies and crumbles beautifully. You can make the pasta sauce with tomatoes, beets and crumbled tempeh and just mix your favorite cooked pasta with the sauce. It is that easy and that good! Read on for the recipe!
