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
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.
