Tempeh Spring Rolls

I enjoy playing around with tempeh, I love its texture and versatility.  I needed a quick lunch yesterday so I grabbed two spring roll wrappers, a handful of baby spinach, a few slices of avocado and two strips of teriyaki tempeh.  Typically the ingredients in a spring roll (sometimes called summer rolls) go unseasoned and are served with a dipping sauce.  Tamari on the side was perfect for these simple rolls.


If you’re unfamiliar with spring roll wrappers here’s a quick video showing how to roll them.

Stir-Fried Tofu, Red Cabbage and Winter Squash

I’m a huge red cabbage fan: I like it chopped raw in my green salads, finely shredded and splashed with rice vinegar for a quick slaw, cut into ribbons and sauteed with onions for an easy side, roughly cut and steamed for a veggie bowl dressed with a peanut sauce, sliced into wedges and roasted and blended into soups.  Red cabbage always pops up on those “super foods” lists and it’s one of the most affordable seasonal vegetables you can buy.

Potato Latkes

Today I spent the morning in my son’s 3rd grade class making potato latkes. As another parent and I cooked, we watched the children light the Menorah, sing traditional songs and play the Dreidel game.  A lovely morning, indeed.

Latkes are delicious anytime of year, not just for Hanukkah.  I had such a good time, and because my son devoured them, I plan on making them again soon.  Simeon had a wonderful suggestion of adding a sweet potato to the mix.

  • 1 pound potatoes
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ to ¾ cup olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 250°F.

Snack Food – Spiced Nut Bars

Spice Bars Print Author: Everyday Paleo Ingredients

  1. In a food processor, pulse only the nuts and the sea salt until finely chopped but still chunky. Some will be ground up almost like almond meal but they will not all be consistent, and that’s totally ok.
  2. Pour your nuts into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the dried dates and other dried fruit to the food processor and process until it makes a paste (it will probably turn into a giant sticky ball when it’s done).
