Merry Christmas to you all today, from Lu and I! Thank you so much for everything you have already gifted me this year. Without your encouragement, support and laughs, I would never have accomplished as much as I have this year.

I hope you spend your Christmas cozied up with those you love and cherish every moment together. Life is beautiful and when we’re surrounded by our loved ones and those who nurture us, anything’s possible.

Merry Christmas! 

All my love to everyone today, Christmastime or not!

I’ve got these BUFFALO TOFU WRAPS on the menu for next week - there’s a secret ingredient to make the tofu crisp up in the air fryer (you’ll see in the video!) 🥑🥬🥕⁣

and since we all appreciate a good lu review, he thought these were buffalo chicken wraps when I first served them to him! 😜 ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! 🙌🏼⁣

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
