A classic tomato bolognese with tempeh and fresh fennel, tossed through chickpea fettuccine.
1. Heat a frypan over medium heat with 1 tbsp oil. Dice onion, carrot and fennel bulb (reserve fronds). Add to pan as you go along with 1 tsp fennel seeds. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until softened.

2. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil.
Crumble tempeh, add to frypan along with 1 tbsp thyme leaves. Crush in garlic, crumble in stock cube and stir in 3 tbsp tomato paste. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

3. Pour in diced tomatoes and 1 1/2 can of water (600ml). Stir to combine. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until slightly reduced. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Cook chickpea pasta according to packet instructions in the saucepan of boiling water. Drain and rinse.

5. Julienne the zucchini into noodles. Alternatively, ribbon using a vegetable peeler or use a vegetable spiralizer. Toss into sauce along with chickpea pasta and combine until coated.

6. Divide pasta between bowls and top with reserved fennel fronds to serve.

Most of our veggies come pre-washed, but it’s always good to give them an extra rinse.
