Baja-Style Tempeh Tacos

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!
