        Directions

        01

        For salad, preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Add bread pieces to large baking sheet and toss with oil and salt. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until bread is beginning to toast. Cool completely.

        02

        For dressing, in large salad bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, and salt to combine, and then add cooled bread and toss to coat. Add salad greens and cheese on top of bread and toss well to incorporate just before serving (you can transport salad greens and cheese on the bread, just don’t combine until serving time). Taste a piece of bread and lettuce and add a splash more vinegar if it needs some brightness. Serve.

        Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

        This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
