  • 1 sweet potato medium-sized
  • 1/2 butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or ghee
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 7 oz tempeh cut into cubes (about 2cm x 2cm)
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or liquid aminos
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth or as needed
  • 2 cups spinach or kale, chopped and tightly packed
  • 1 deseeded red chilli
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes


  • Preheat the oven to 400 °F/200 °C.
  • Rinse the sweet potato, peel the butternut squash and roast it together on a parchment lined baking tray for 35-45 minutes. You want it to be soft but not mushy.
  • Heat the ghee in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the onions and sweat them until they turn golden.
  • Now add the tempeh to the pan and sauté until golden-brown as well.
  • Meantime chop the by now cooled down sweet potatoes and butternut squash into chunky cubes and add them to the pan.
  • Sprinkle the spices, tamari, chilli and lemon juice on top and stir before you pour in the broth.
  • Throw the spinach or kale on top and allow it to wilt.
  • Season with red pepper flakes.
