These hearty tempeh maple harvest bowls are a filling, healthy dinner filled with Fall flavors!
One of the fun parts of food blogging is seeing which recipes people gravitate towards the most. And they usually aren’t the recipes that I would’ve expected to be popular. Don’t get me wrong, I love the recipes that I share with you all, but my two most popular recipes are one’s where I was still struggling with photography and the recipes themselves were super simple one’s from my college days. But I guess that just shows that simple really is the way to go most of the time ?.
My Sweet and Spicy Tempeh and Sweet Potato Sandwiches continue to be the second most popular post (with these Balsamic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes at #1). When I posted the recipe initially, I didn’t think it’d be a huge hit as I didn’t know many people who ate tempeh. But I loved the recipe, so I figured it was worth sharing in case a fellow tempeh-eater came along. Well it turns out that a lot of you are looking for delicious tempeh recipes!
These maple harvest bowls are a spin on those tempeh and sweet potato sandwiches. The marinade is the same, but it’s now doubled as you’ll use it first to marinate the tempeh and then save it to drizzle on the assembled bowls afterwards. I also added in some brussels sprouts as you can’t have a Fall-inspired recipe without brussels sprouts ?. Finally, instead of the bread I used buckwheat groats as my grain. I love buckwheat as it’s easy to cook, chewy, and nutty. However, if you can’t find buckwheat groats, feel free to use any other whole grain!
As a warning, these bowls are super filling thanks to all that fiber! Even Bry found he didn’t need his traditional after-dinner snack. I also advise you to put parchment paper over your baking sheet. I unfortunately ran out of parchment paper and was left with a very sticky and hard to clean baking sheet – not something you want to spend your night cleaning.
After having a guest-filled summer, going to Norway for 10 days, and then Apple Fest weekend in Connecticut, this week finally felt normal. And normal feels so good.
So here’s a toast to getting back into the routine of things this Fall!
