A blend of original Cheerios and oats work great as a base for the squares.Both add an oaty flavor and offer a heafty dose of whole grain.Delicious and easy vegan almond flour zucchini bread made without oil or refined sugar!I posted this quick and easy tempeh butternut squash bake on Instagram and everyone went crazy asking for the recipe so here it is!I’m pretty excited about it for a variety of reasons.
1) It utilizes one of my favorite fall veggies (butternut squash) 2) it doesn’t take long to prep 3) it’s packed with almost 30 grams of protein and 4) it only requires one pan!
One pan = less dishes to wash = always a plus in my book Butternut squash, onions, mushrooms and bite-size pieces of tempeh are tossed in a flavorful ginger garlic brown sauce that I typically use to marinate tempeh.
Butternut isn’t typically prepared with Asian flavors, but the sauce used in this dish is Asian-inspired and it works perfectly!
The tamari (or soy sauce if you’re not gluten-free) blended with coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, fresh ginger and garlic adds just the right amount of salty, robust flavor.
Normally I like adding a little sweetness to this type of sauce, but the butternut squash provides that here! Here are a few of my favorites: Tempeh with Kale + Coconut Aminos Tempeh Pasta Sauce over Spaghetti Squash 21 Day Fix Lemon Garlic Tempeh Garlic Teriyaki Tempeh and Broccoli These no bake superfood cereal squares are the perfect combo of chewy and crunchy.
This dish is great on it’s own or you can serve it over brown rice, quinoa or some greens if you want to pack in some additional veggies. They hold together well so they’re portable and make a delicious, healthy whole-grain snack!
