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.

Preparation Time: 
20 minutes
Cooking Time: 
Servings:

SO HOW'D IT GO?

amaaaazing! i've used soy crumbles in this recipe before and found them to be too salty. the grated tempeh worked so much better for making taco 'meat' in my opinion. thank you for sharing this super easy and yummy recipe! my non-veggie friends requested that i make this again very soon. ;)b

I never would have thought to grate it.  Dawnofzio is right it soaks it up sooo well. Made them for the boyfriend and he thought they were fabulous as well.

This was the best way to use my tempeh because it really takes care of hiding the tempeh flavor that usually turns me off. Great idea! So yummy.  ;)b

Super easy and super awesome. Tacos are so versatile and simple!

I think tempeh for tacos is way better than tofu, as well. It's much "meatier" and not runny like tofu. Yum!

okay..so i used mccormick's chili seasoning and goya sazon for the spices, and two drops of liquid smoke.
and, well, didn't have any taco shells, so instead made a tempeh taco salad with tortilla chips..
and it was AMAZING!
great recipe, and I will defiantly make again..my omni friends will be amazed for sure as well!
