Some Like it Roasted

Pardon the Some Like it Hot pun. It just came to me. Maybe because I recently watched the movie. Anyways. This post has nothing to do with Marilyn Monroe, or a movie for that matter. It has to do with food. Because food is far more interesting, clearly. Or maybe because I like talking about food. You pick. Either way…

I wanted to tell you about an awesomely delicious homemade main dish salad that I’ve been loving lately. I think I first got the idea from another blog, but I forget where, so here it is.

Roasted & Raw Vegetables With Tempeh (Salad)

makes 2

Step 1: Chop up your favorite roasting vegetables and half a block of tempeh, season as desired, and roast on 375˚F for 30 minutes:

Brussel Sprouts, Sweet Potato, Onion, Garlic, & Tempeh

Brussel Sprouts, Carrot, Sweet Potato, Red Bell Pepper, Garlic, & Tempeh

Sample Roasting Spices

Sometimes I use this instead of olive oil for extra flavor while roasting

Other spice options: Basil, Thyme, Rosemary, etc.

Step 2: Combine your raw ingredients on your plate/bowl. (Can be done while roasting your veggies for ultra-efficiency)

Spinach, Broccoli Slaw, Baby Bella Mushroom, Alfalfa Sprouts, Cucumber, & Grape Tomatoes

Step 3: Add the roasted veggies to your raw veggies and top with desired toppings.

Favorites:

a tablespoon of a flavorful cheese

Mango Salsa

Salad dressing. Yes I already posted it in this entry. Yes, it's that good.

The Final Product:

yummmmm

As I mentioned above- I make enough for 2 salads –> one for dinner and one for lunch the next day. Quick, easy, and delicious!

I’m going to leave you with what I’m listening to right now:

So. Good.
