Three Greens with Tempeh Gems and Creamy Beetroot Dressing

Ingredients (Serves 2)

4 cups kale, stalks removed

1 bunch broccolini

handful alfalfa sprouts

4 tbsp fermented beetroot

300g organic and non-GMO tempeh, diced into 1 cm cubes

½ avocado, diced

1 tbsp coconut aminos

1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes

½ tsp cumin

sea salt

Creamy Beetroot Dressing

100g beetroot, roasted or vacuum sealed

1 tbsp tahini

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

½ tsp cumin

sea salt


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Prepare Tempeh Gems by placing tempeh cubes in a bowl, toss in the coconut aminos. Once covered, top with nutritional yeast, cumin and a touch of salt. Gently toss.

Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 20 minutes. Be sure to check and turn the tempeh halfway through.

While tempeh is cooking, begin to prepare the beetroot dressing.

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy. Set aside or place in the fridge.

Steam the greens and top with a pinch of salt.

Now construct the bowl.

Begin with a bed of kale and broccolini, scatter the tempeh pieces and diced avocado.

Pile the fermented beetroot just to the left of centre and a ½ handful of alfalfa sprouts just next to that.

Drizzle beetroot dressing and enjoy!

Store left-over dressing in the fridge for the next day.

Option to top with 1 – 2 tbsp hemp seeds.
