  • 1/2 pack Smiling Hara Raspberry-Habanero-BBQ hempeh (or any other flavors you like), sliced or cubed*
  • Grapeseed, avocado, or unrefined coconut oil
  • 2 cups chopped romaine
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup non-GMO corn kernels
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, chopped
  • 3 tbsp water

Instructions

If you haven’t prepared your Ranch dressing yet, please do according to these instructions.

Fill a mixing bowl with your greens, moving them to one side—make room for warmer items—set aside. Now, in a skillet heated to medium, drizzle 1 teaspoon oil and add corn kernels. Shake out pan to scatter corn and let the kernels sear undisturbed for 2 minutes. Shake pan again and cook 1 more minute, then transfer to the large mixing bowl. Add broccoli to the skillet with a little oil—let florets sear in the pan undisturbed for 5 minutes. Toss 3 tablespoons of water into the skillet, cover with a lid and let the florets steam for 1–2 minutes. Remove broccoli from heat and transfer to the mixing bowl. Reduce heat of the skillet to medium-low and add hempeh. Cook for 2 minutes on each side and transfer to the mixing bowl. Add avocado, onion, a pinch of sea salt, fresh-cracked black pepper, dressing and enjoy.
