Tempeh Tacos

1 pound tempeh (2 8 oz. packages)

2 Tbsp. olive oil

3 Tbsp. soy sauce

1/4 c. lime juice

1 Tbsp. Mexican seasoning (I use Ortega chipotle taco seasoning, and probably put in 1/2 a package)

1 onion, chopped

1/4 cup chopped cilantro (totally optional)

12 taco shells

whatever you like for garnish,

we like avocado, cheese, refried beans and sour cream


  1. chop the tempeh into small squares (or crumble it)
  2. In a medium sized bowl mix the oil, soy, lime juice and Mexican seasoning.  Mix in the tempeh and stir to coat.
  3. Marinate 10-30 min.
  4. Heat a little more oil in a skillet and sautee the onion until it’s translucent.  Add the tempeh and sautee over medium high heat until some pieces are golden brown.  There’s too much marinade to get it all golden brown, it doesn’t matter.
  5. Stuff into warmed taco shells with the fillings of your choice.
