I’m an environmentally conscious guy. I love to go out and look at the bounty of nature, admire landscapes, and ponder on the vast expanse of time that had to pass for all of it to exist. But, sometimes it gets real cold out and I’d rather stay inside. My Chocolate Hazelnut PasTREEs might not stir an existential crisis within you, but they are packed with JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter. When you want to connect with nature from the comfort of your kitchen, try these!

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.
