Pesto Linguine with Tempeh
Tempeh is a versatile meat-alternative that’s easy to prepare, healthful, and tastes great too. A staple food in Indonesia for centuries, it's made from whole soybeans and/or grains. Tempeh is a rich source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. This recipe uses Turtle Island Tempeh (see product below)... convenient, delicious, and ready-made, it's the perfect addition to this dish.
8 oz. Turtle Island Five Grain Tempeh
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup wine vinegar
8 cloves garlic
8 oz. linguine noodles
3 cups fresh basil leaves
¼ cup nutritional yeast* (optional)
1 ½ cups walnuts, chopped
1 cup olive oil
salt & pepper (to taste)
* Not to be confused with brewer's yeast, nutritional yeast can be found at your local natural foods store.
Make a marinade by boiling soy sauce, 2 ½ cups of water, wine vinegar, and 6 cloves of pressed garlic.
Chop tempeh into ½ “ cubes and add to the marinade; simmer for 15 minutes, then drain and set aside.
Prepare noodles in a separate pot. Boil 2 quarts of water and ½ tsp. of salt; stir in noodles and cook until “al dente” (just a minute or two less than package cooking directions); remove from heat, rinse, and drain.
In food processor, make a pesto by blending together basil leaves, walnuts, nutritional yeast, and 2 cloves of garlic; pour in oil slowly while still mixing; add salt and pepper.
Combine tempeh with drained linguini; add pesto to taste and toss. You can also add your favorite veggies (fresh, steamed, or sauteed).

Meat Shortens Life Span
Red meat and processed meat significantly shorten life span, a U.S. National Cancer Institute study has declared. The study reveals that this is due not
only to cancer and heart disease, but from Alzheimer's, stomach ulcers, and an array of other conditions.
The study is significant because of its range and drastic conclusions. The U.S. National Cancer Institute examined the dietary habits of more than a half-million people, ages 50 to 71, over the span of a decade. Men and women eating the highest amount of red meat were found to have an astounding 31 percent and 36 percent higher risk of dying from any cause. Causes of death for those in the study included diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, ulcers, pneumonia, influenza, liver disease, HIV,
tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and more.

Meatout Feed-in for Peace
A thousand communities throughout all 50 U.S. states and 29 other countries welcomed spring with colorful educational events in honor of Meatout 2009. Caring people encouraged friends, family, and community members to “kick the meat habit” on March 20th (first day of spring) and explore a healthy, compassionate plant-based diet.
In Washington, DC, FARM hosted a Meatout Feed-In for Peace, feeding more than a thousand people at a massive peace rally. Serving Tofurky sandwiches and Primal Sticks (meatless jerky), volunteers engaged flocks of curious demonstrators who learned about the inherent violence of meat and sampled some of the best alternatives on the market.
Thanks again to Turtle Island and Primal Spirit for their exceptional support and generosity.
