Roasted Vegetable Salad w Avocado Dressing & Gingery Maple Glazed Tempeh

Such a great salad! I could have eaten the salad without the tempeh but wanted to try out the combination together & I’m so glad I did! This recipe is cool because you can use the tempeh recipe for many other meals, & I will definitely be serving this salad at future dinner parties!

Special shout out to my brother who inspired me to make this salad ❤ This is what I will be (looking forward to) eating all week for lunch. Meal prep does NOT have to be boring people!

^ I doubled the recipe (per usual) which is why there is more than 4 0z of tempeh !

-Add 1 teaspoon oil to the pan & toss tempeh to coat. Add 1 teaspoon tamari & 2 teaspoons maple syrup. Mix well to coat & let thicken & sizzle for 30 seconds or more, depending on how black/charred you want the tempeh

-Place on greens (I used arugula) with cherry tomatoes, roasted vegetable salad, & avocado dressing !

Side note: I have decided to stop adding salt to my meals, there’s just no need for it ! Feel free to add salt to any of my recipes !

Grocery Shopping

^ Grocery shopping yesterday . . . I love our local store because they have great produce & a great organic section, but I hate that they don’t have cup holders ! Can’t have it all I guess !
