  • Add cubed tempeh and sliced red onion to a casserole pan and coat with the Saffron Road Simmer Thai Simmer sauce. *Alternatively, You can use 2 tablespoons of Red Thai Curry Paste and 1 can of coconut milk. Bake this in the oven with the butternut squash noodles.
  • After the squash noodles are tender and the tempeh and onion is cooked (around 20-minutes) take them out of the oven. You can then add the noodles to individual bowls, and top with the tempeh and onions. Then season with coconut aminos, shredded cheese, nutritional yeast, shredded cilantro, and siracha. Feel free to mix-and-match ingredients based on your preferences. I might even add some peas and mushrooms to this next time.
