Flavorful seaweed pasta with cauliflower, tempeh and carrot

Lately, I’ve been on a health streak. I’ve never been able to keep that going for this long. The reason I manage to keep eating healthy is because I make every meal delicious. I’ve been experimenting with new recipes and “tickle my taste-buds” (anyone get the reference?) in order to keep this healthy lifestyle exciting.
One of the ingredients I am loving, at the moment, is Seamore I sea pasta. This pasta (made of just seaweed) is delicious, light and flavorful. You can use it in Asian or Mediterranean dishes, it always works. Fun fact: Seamore pasta is a great source of Iodine – something that isn’t easy to get in on a vegan diet.


Just a disclaimer: I am not sponsored by Seamore (I wish I was). I just really love the pasta.

While you can simply make a noodle soup/bowl or pasta marinara, I thought I’d give you all some inspiration for a totally different dish. The recipe below is deliciously flavorful and packed with veggies. Allergen-wise: it’s vegan, nut free and gluten free. It’s also quick and easy, so great for weak-day dinners.

Ingredients:
– 25 g seamore pasta*
– 75 g tempeh
– tbsp tamari
– 3/4 cup shredded carrot
– 1 cup mini florets cauliflower
– 1 clove garlic
– 1 tbsp sliced red onion
– tsp cumin
– tsp ground coriander
– 1/2 tsp paprika
– salt
– pepper
– fresh cilantro
– lime

*If Seamore isn’t available where you live, you can substitute the sea pasta with rice noodles or other seaweed pasta.

Directions:
Cook the pasta for 20 minutes, until al dente.
Cut the tempeh into small cubes and let them marinate in tamari.
Heat a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Bake the onion and garlic for several minutes, until fragrant. Once fragrant add the tamari tempeh and bake for 3-5 minutes.
Add in the cauliflower, cumin, ground coriander, paprika, salt and pepper and a splash of water. Let this all cook until the water has evaporated (about 5-10 minutes). Then add in the shredded carrot and bake for another 5-10 minutes.
When the pasta is done, drain it and add it to the vegetable mixture. Mix well.
Serve with chopped cilantro and lime juice.
That’s it! So quick and easy.
