1/2 cup cucumber ribbons

4 tbsp sprouts

1/4 cup broccoli

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

2. Cut and marinate the tempeh: Cut the tempeh into 12 1-inch cubes.

3. In a small bowl, mix sesame oil, coconut milk, aminos, cumin, smoked paprika. Place the tempeh into the marinade and set aside for 20 minutes.

4. While the tempeh marinates, roast the broccoli: Spread the broccoli florets on a baking sheet. Drizzle with coconut oil, salt and pepper. Place in the over and roast for 5-8 min per side.

5. Next, make the sauce: Place coconut milk, almond butter, sesame oil, aminos, and lemon juice in a small blender cup. Blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste, transfer to a small container, and set aside while you cook the tempeh and build the bowls.

6. Cook the tempeh + Cauliflower Rice: Place the cubes onto skewers, 3 per skewer. Heat a pan to medium heat. Drizzle the pan with coconut oil and place the skewers in the pan. Heat for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown all around. Add a bit of marinade while you cook to add flavor. 

7. Once the tempeh skewers are cooked, remove from pan. In the same pan, heat the cauliflower rice for 2-3 minutes. Add some of the tempeh marinade for flavor while you cook. 

8. To assemble: Place cauliflower rice and kale as a base to your bowl. Top with snow peas, cucumber ribbons, sprouts, broccoli, and tempeh skewers. Garnish with spring onions, drizzle on the sauce, and enjoy!
