Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I love to dance. Full-on dad style. If you know anything else about me, it’s that I have a huge sweet tooth. One of my favorite ways to indulge my cravings for sweets is with my almond butter bacon-wrapped dates. I make it with fresh pitted dates, crispy bacon, and JUSTIN’S® Maple Almond Butter. It’s so good it makes me feel like I could dance!

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash and Brussels in a close up shot laid on white parchment paper

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash, and Brussels is a genuine triple threat. This dinner delight is vegetarian, full of flavor, and cooks in one pan. It doesn’t take your whole day to prepare either. At any given moment, you are thirty minutes of marinating, a few minutes of tossing ingredients together, and thirty minutes of hands-off roasting away from enjoying a flavor-packed, wholesome, vegetarian meal. Seriously. There’s really no downside to this recipe.
