Tempeh Toast


As the end of the year approaches, one of the nicest things you can do for yourself, is to practice being kind and easy on yourself. Just last night, after finishing a rather complex and intricate meal which I had wiped up for my husband and I, we exchanged knowing glances and I turned to him and said, “let’s just make whatever tomorrow night.” For me, that means eggs on toast, or even better, Tempeh Toast. This is my go to meal whenever I’m after something as equally cosy and easy as it is healthy and nutritious. This recipe is adapted from the very clever Calgary Avansino. On a side note, finding inspiration from other healthy, super savvy mothers is my number one past time. Hope you find this recipe as inspiring as I did xx
