Tempeh Vegetables Veggies Salad Bowl

Make it meatless, make it tempeh.

Not only is tempeh a great source of plant-based protein, this block of fermented soybeans means a jolt of good bacteria while feasting on homemade veggie salad protein bowl meals e.g. Tempeh, Broccoli, Avocado, Kiwi Salad Bowl.

In addition, the mixed grains (of rice, barley and millet) included in Trader Joes 3-grain tempeh is a bonus - which means, more fiber, and more nutrients.

For meatless/vegetarian/plant-based protein bowls, you can also use regular tofu - tofu typically used in Chinese stir-fries such as Napa Cabbage, Bok Choy, Mushrooms and TofuPineapple Bell Peppers TofuSweet and Sour Tofu ).

Find this green veggie bowl too plain? Of course, there are more colors to it. Look up!
