One of the biggest obstacles for healthy eating is not having enough time to cook. However, it doesn't always have to be that time consuming and complicated. This is a nutritious; simple; and delicious lunch I threw together today in just about 10 minutes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
1 Piece of Tempeh (Tempeh is a plant based protein made from fermented soybeans, and you can find it in about any grocery store. Compared to tofu, it is higher in protein; fiber; iron; and potassium. You can always substitute cauliflower or chicken based off your dietary needs and preferences.)
1 TBSP of Nutritional Yeast (Nutritional yeast is definitely one of my favorite toppings! It has a cheesy nutty flavor; is low in calories; and is packed with nutrients including: protein, fiber, B vitamins, and iron.)
1 TSP of Hot Sauce (I personally like using Truff or Tobasco hot sauce.)
1 TSP of garlic powder
1 TSP of onion powder
1 TSP of turmeric powder (Turmeric supports with: reducing inflammation; preventing diseases such as cancer, heart disease, or Alzheimer’s; promoting healthy skin; managing blood sugar; and improving one's mood.)
1-2 TBSP of Hummus (My favorites with this bowl are: "Ithaca lemon dill hummus" or "Boar's Head Everything But Bagel Hummus".)
1-2 TBSP of Tzatziki: (Tzatziki typically includes: Greek yogurt; cucumbers; and dill. However, if you are vegan or lactose intolerant, you can get vegan tzatziki that is made with almond or coconut yogurt, and it's just as delicious!)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Roast tempeh in oven for about 10 minutes
While tempeh is cooking, put hummus and tzatziki in the middle of a bowl
Surround the dips in the bowl with carrots and celery
Take tempeh out of oven; slice it; and toss with hot sauce, nutritional yeast, and powders
Place tempeh in bowl with the veggies surrounding the dips
Dip your veggies and tempeh in the hummus and tzatziki, and ENJOY!
