After a tough workout at the gym today, I was famished when I got home. There was a bunch of random stuff in my house that I just didn't know what to do with. Not knowing exactly what I was hungry for, I threw together this delicious vegetable medley with tempeh bacon. DEAR LORD! It is so good. I'm finishing my bowl right now and getting another after I type this.
Here's the recipe:
Hungry Woman's Veggies with Tempeh Bacon
PAM cooking spray
1/2 cup vegetable stock
1/3 cup chopped onions
1 baked potato, cut into chunks (I used Yukon Gold)
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach
2 cloves of garlic
1 medium-sized tomato, cut into chunks
1-2 tbsp fresh dill (I LOVE dill)
1 tsp paprika
a few dashes of freshly ground black pepper
2 strips of Tempeh bacon, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 tbsp agave nectar
Spray skillet with PAM, a good amount. Add the vegetable stalk, onions, garlic, and tomato. Let simmer for 1 minute. Add in the spinach, tomato, dill, paprika, and pepper. Let the spinach cook down a little bit, about 1-2 minutes, and then add in your chunks of baked potato. Move the veggies around the skillet with a spatula until the potatoes get a nice coating of the spices. Add in the tempeh bacon and cook until their is the fragrant bacon smell in the kitchen, about 2 minutes. Add in the agave nectar and let simmer for about 20 seconds. Take the meal off the skillet and top with some guacamole.
1 avocado, mashed
juice of half a lime
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1-2 tsp ground cumin
Combine ingredients and add on the top of your veggies and tempeh bacon. The heat of the veggies and the coolness of the guacamole is just a delicious fiesta of flavors in your mouth!
