Earlier today we shared a raspberry protein shake recipe that was a fabulous way to kickstart your day with a little healthy detoxing. And now, as promised from the The Clean in 14 Detox, we’re sharing author Melissa Costello’s Sweet and Savory Tempeh Tacos recipe. Vegetarian, high in protein and loaded with protein and flavor, they make for a delicious meal for two! And if you’ve never tried tempeh before, this is a fab recipe to try it!
Sweet and Savory Tempeh Tacos Recipe
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons olive oil
1 package (8 ounces) tempeh, crumbled
2 tablespoons vegan Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons maple syrup
6 Bibb or romaine lettuce leaves
1. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the crumbled tempeh and sauté until lightly brown, stirring frequently.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining oil, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, sesame seeds, vinegar and syrup. Pour the sauce over the tempeh and let the mixture cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the sauce is absorbed into the tempeh.
3. To assemble the tacos, place a spoonful of tempeh on a lettuce leaf and top with the avocado slices.
