Tempeh Tacos

What you need: 

1 (8 ounce) package tempeh
oil, as needed
1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning (I use Lawry's taco seasoning)
1 1/4 cups water
8 taco shells
salsa, to taste
lettuce, shredded, to taste
onion, diced, to taste
tomato, sliced, to taste

What you do: 

1. Grate tempeh with cheese grater. Heat frying pan with oil, and add tempeh. Cook on medium until brown, stirring occasionally.
2. Add taco seasoning and water. Cook gently until thickened.
3. Scoop into taco shells and add toppings.
Tempeh most resembles what we used to fill tacos with in our less conscious days. It is also much easier to digest than textured soy protein which people more commonly use. Find it at health food stores in the frozen section.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Meelaja

When I added the water my very first thought is "Oh no... What have I just done to my beautiful tempeh!

wow! This is my first time cookin tempeh and I loved it. I had my 20 yr old neice and boyfriend for dinner and they loved it too. Even ate more than usual. I had avacodos, tomatoes, lettuse, onions and salsa for taco stuffing with corn tortillas. I used cumin, paprika, garlic powder and black pepper with water rather than the taco seasoning and it was good. I cant wait to tell all my friends about this!! i am a new vegan and I was sad to have to give up mexican food now I know I wont have to. I am so happy!

These weren't too bad. Personally I'm not much of a tempeh fan so I wouldn't say this is a favorite.

However, I didn't detest it either. This is the first tempeh recipe I haven't detested yet. I'll most likely be eating this from time to time. I added nutritonal yeast and chia seeds to it. I topped it with broccoli sprouts and watercress and had a green leafy salad to the side.

Let me tell you all a secret about my years of being a vegan and picking up tips. Tempeh can be grated but you have to steam it first. Steaming changes the structure of the food and makes it accepting of grating. I recommend steaming tempeh for about fifteen minutes and then let it cool. You can pull your steamer basket out of the pot and the tempeh will cool much faster. Then grate it and you'll have no problem.

When I added the water my very first thought is "Oh no... What have I just done to my beautiful tempeh!?" But I just let it cook out and it was alll okay. I made these in easily about 10 minutes including prep. Super fast meal, and I have to say this is the best recipe I've ever had that used tempeh. Bravo.

This was my first tiem cooking with Tempeh and I loved it.  When I tried grating the tempeh it just started crumbling so I abandoned the grating and just crumbled it all and it tasted really good.  I stuffed with shredded cabbage, salsa, and red sauce for a light fresh taco.

These were so so good.  I didn't grate the tempeh, I simply cut it into really small pieces.  Also didn't use as much water as the recipe called for (I simply followed the dirctions on the taco seasoning packet).  Loaded it up  with vegan sour cream, guac, lettuce, vegan cheese and taco sauce.  I've been looking or more ways to use Tempeh... this recipe was perfect.
