    Directions

    01

    Preheat oven to 375 F. Place cornbread cubes on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cubes are golden at the edges, stirring gently halfway through baking.

    Whisk together all dressing ingredients in small mixing bowl.

    Combine all salad ingredients in large mixing bowl and add dressing. Toss gently (I find it easiest to use my hands). Add extra salt and pepper as needed, as well as an extra splash of vinegar if desired. Serve. Leftover salad will keep well in airtight container in fridge overnight.

    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.
