i boiled my sliced (not cubed) tempeh first, then cooked it with all the other filling ingredients..

i mixed shredded lettuce and cabbage, sliced green pepper, onion, carrot and radish and my veg sour cream and homemade roasted tomatillo salsa all together to form almost a sort of delicious mexican coleslaw..

then i made my tacos.. and devoured them!.. but first i got picture :)
