    I just made this tonight, and it is REALLY good!! This is similar to a recipe I use that calls for steaming the veggies, but this is so much easier!! There are far fewer pots and pans to clean up. I followed Jill’s recipe exactly with no substitutions. The only thing I did differently was that I added caramelized onions at the end and then topped it all off with chopped avocado. I bet it would be good to add chopped fresh tomatoes when baking the veggies. Thank you, Jill!!

  2. This looks like a yummy recipe but you have broth listed twice in the ingredients. How would the second portion of broth be used?

    1. Yes, sorry, it was an editing mistake. We corrected it so yes, the zucchini goes in with the peppers and mushrooms =)

  3. Thanks for another great recipe. I made this yesterday and it was very good. However, I do not see the zucchini or the parsley flakes listed in the instructions. How are they used?

  4. I just made this for lunch and it is amazing. The spices were perfect. I will make this many more times and probably experiment with other vegetables too! I’m always looking for a way to get mushrooms in our meals more often so this one helps a lot! ?

  5. Great recipe! It’s a keeper. Next time I’ll also roast the tempeh in the oven to add texture and flavor. Thanks Jill

  6. Hi, Jill! Your baskets don’t seem to have those chalk labels. I really love the ones you have! I wonder why the ones on amazon have them. Is it a new version?
    Jill, you are using a stainless pan in this video, may I ask you what is the bran name of the pan? Thank you!

      1. Does Tempeh taste better than Tofu also can I use any pan for this recipe? Thank you

      2. Tempeh has a very strong taste and if you haven’t had it before it takes a little getting used to but it would work for this recipe. You can use any pan that is oven safe.

  7. I’ve made this dish twice since I saw you make it. My husband and I love it! The hard part is getting ahold of tempeh around our small, northern Wisconsin town. Thank you for sharing all this goodness, and helping us toward a whole food plant based lifestyle!

  8. This tasted great, but I felt it was a bit labor intensive. I used three Russet potatoes as mine were large, but I still had a ton of veggies and potatoes. I had to double the amount of seasoned broth. I also apparently cut my potato chunks too large as it took an hour to bake. This would be great for weekends, but was too much work for a weekday morning.
