Autumn Vegetable Glazed Tempeh Bake

October 2, 2018

 

 

 

Fall is finally here, and with it, comes lots of new, seasonal produce, and heartier, more nourishing meals. Gone are the days of chilled salads, raw veggies and cooling foods, and we welcome rich, root veggies and warm dishes with open arms!

When it comes to autumn dishes, nothing is easier than a meal based in roasted vegetables of any kind. But produce like potatoes, squashes, turnips, beets, carrots and other root veggies are especially perfect this time of the year. Pair them with fresh herbs, spices, garlic, ginger or turmeric and simply toss together with your favorite protein, and you’ll have a beautiful, comforting weeknight meal in no time at all.

This variation is especially tasty with glazed tempeh. Though soy is known to be an issue with some women who have been affected by breast cancer, tempeh is typically mixed with other grains, has a lower soy content, and it’s fermented nature makes it easier to digest and healthier to consume!
