Wash produce before use


Cook the rigatoni

Heat the oven to 400°F.
Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the rigatoni and cook until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup [2 cups] pasta cooking water. Return the rigatoni to the pot, drizzle with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil, and toss to coat.
While the water heats and the rigatoni cooks, prepare the tempeh.


Start the tempeh

  • Crumble or cut the tempeh into ¼-inch pieces.
In a large frying pan, combine the tamari and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Add the tempeh and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain the tempeh and transfer to a plate. Wipe the pan dry.
While the tempeh cooks, prepare the broccoli.


Prep and roast the broccoli

  • Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets; trim any coarse stems.
On a sheet pan, toss the broccoli with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast, stirring once halfway through, until lightly browned and crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
While the broccoli roasts, prepare the tempeh Bolognese.


Cook the tempeh Bolognese

  • In a small bowl, season the vegan “Parmesan” to taste with salt. Set aside for garnish.
In the same pan used to soften the tempeh, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the mirepoix, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tempeh and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tempeh is lightly browned and the mirepoix is softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in the marinara, maple syrup, and either ¾ cup [1½ cups] reserved pasta cooking water and ¼ cup [½ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or a total of 1 cup [2 cups] reserved pasta cooking water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened slightly, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the rigatoni to individual bowls, top with the tempeh Bolognese, and sprinkle with the vegan “Parmesan.” Serve the broccoli on the side.
