Wholesome Asian greens bowl with marinated tempeh drizzled with tahini!
I test out A LOT of sweets in my kitchen but sometimes I just want a real savoury meal with lots of greens! And I definitely want a proper savoury meal to fill me up so I don't snack aimlessly on cake haha.
This nourish bowl will definitely fill you up. It has satiating carbs from the brown/red rice, good fats from the avocado and protein from the tempeh.
I marinated the tempeh with coconut aminos and baked it in the oven for ease. If I can bake something rather than saute it, I'm 100% there! I paired it with blanched veggies, drizzled it with straight tahini and created my perfect meal!
I eat a very simplified version of this on a day-to-day basis... that means, I'll just have 1-2 greens, some sort of plant-based protein and carbs/rice if I'm lucky. Feel free to mix and match vegetables with this recipe!
I hope you enjoy this simple recipe!
