Asparagus, Mushroom and Tempeh Stuffed Roasted Yams

Stuffed Yams are a healthy hearty dinner, that can be made within an hour with little hands on time.  I make them about 4 times a week in fact, because they are filled with vitamins and healthy carbs plus they taste amazing.  The recipe I am sharing with you today has asparagus and mushrooms in an Asian marinade with tempeh for some protein to top the yams off with. It only takes about five minutes hands on time, so you can have dinner on the table fast (and do other things while they are cooking).  This is the perfect thing to make now that asparagus is coming into season.

Preheat the oven to 375F degrees. Place the yams cut side down on a lined sheet pan. Place in the oven and roast for about 1 hour until they are tender. Meanwhile, after about 1/2 an hour, toss the tamari, oil, syrup, vinegar, and garlic together with the tempeh, asparagus, and mushrooms in a bowl, and spread out on a lined sheet pan. Place in the oven and roast for about 30 minutes until starting to brown and tender. To serve, place the yams cut side up on plates, and top with the tempeh and veggies. Enjoy!
