How to make this High Protein Maple Mustard Almond Tempeh Bowl

Step one: prep and cook the tempeh

  • Cut or slice the tempeh into bite size pieces, then heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium to high heat.

  • Add the almonds and spices, stir, and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Transfer the tempeh to a bowl, but don’t turn off the heat yet.

Step two: cook the spinach

  • To the hot skillet, add the spinach with a splash of water and cook until wilted (this will only take about 60-90 seconds) and add sea salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the spinach to the bowl with the tempeh.

Step three: make the maple mustard

  • Mix the mustard and maple syrup using a whisk or a fork and set aside.

Step four: serve and enjoy!

  • Add the vegan kimchi to the bowl and serve everything with the maple mustard. Enjoy!

Recipe notes

  • Instead of tempeh, you can also use: Seitan, smoked tofu, or pre-cooked chickpeas.
  • To turn this into two portions, either double the ingredients, or add 1/2 to 1 cup of cooked grains like quinoa or rice.
