If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a bazillion times: you need to get your hands on Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. This taco recipe is yet another reason. While the dish requires a bit of planning (there are various components and some need to marinate or sit and improve with time), the active time is pretty minimal. And the bottom line: these tacos are delicious and worth any and all effort on your part.
The tempeh preparation involves a few steps: simmering in water for about 10 minutes; marinating in a delicious beer/chili/lime marinade for an hour or more; and then grilling or frying it (as I did) until it’s nicely browned, tender and flavorful. Final step: slice thinly. Yum.
The recipe also includes a simple but perfect tangy cabbage slaw, as well as a “lime crema” that is divine. There are a variety of recommended toppings, but I kept it simple, opting for avocado only.
These components come together to make a super tasty and satisfying plate of food. Get this book!
