“All I want to do is spend an hour on lunch”
Said virtually nobody ever.
Most days, when it comes to lunch, I am saved by leftovers.
However, sometimes I just don’t have anything on hand that I can just heat and eat. For that reason, I always need to have a backup plan. My peanut tempeh broccoli burrito is my current go-to. I am addicted to how delicious and easy they are to prepare. Obviously, I just have to use some of my favorite foods: tempeh and broccoli. Put a spicy peanut sauce into the mix, and I am officially obsessed.
I always find that I have no time to make lunch. Anyone else have that problem? If I actually have time to make something special for lunch, I’m usually just not doing anything that day. Between work, yoga classes, blogging, and (eventually) school, the last thing I have time for is spending an hour in the kitchen. If you can relate, I think these burritos are for you. No, they don’t take 10 minutes to make, but they are easy to prep and easy to put together, and are ready in 20-25 minutes. It is also easy to make earlier and reheat later, though I wouldn’t recommend keeping them as leftovers for more than 2 days or so.
I hope you enjoy this easy and simple spicy peanut tempeh broccoli burrito. I’d say this has been my personal favorite lunch recipe that I have shared thus far, so I definitely feel confident that others will enjoy it as well!
