Spring Sandwich: Roasted Carrot & Tempeh with Ramps & Arugula

Ingredients

  • 1 8oz package of tempeh, cut lengthwise and then into thin strips widthwise
  • 3 medium carrots, julienned (white, orange, purple)
  • 4-6 ramps, white part only, sliced. Reserve the greens for later.
  • Handful of arugula

For the marinade:

  • 2 tbsp white wine
  • 1 tbsp liquid aminos
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp stone ground brown mustard
  • 1 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup or agave

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Prepare the tempeh, carrots, and ramps and put into a large baking dish.
  2. Prepare the marinade by whisking the ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour over the tempeh, carrots, and ramps.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes until the tempeh is cooked through. Remove the tempeh from the dish and set on a separate plate. Drizzle olive oil over the carrots and mix in the ramp greens. Bake for another 10 minutes until carrots a fork can go through the carrots with little resistance (I like mine crisper.) This is also when you’d throw in a pita to toast up. You can also throw the tempeh in for a couple of minutes towards the end to warm it back up.
  4. When the carrots and ramp greens are finished, mix back with the tempeh (if you haven’t already) and put onto the toasted pita. Throw some arugula on top and enjoy!

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
