This plant-based taco meat recipe uses tempeh in place of the real thing, but you’d never know the difference. This recipe only requires three ingredients and 20 minutes to make this versatile dish that you can swap for meat in your favorite recipes. Try it once and you won’t go back.
1. Break tempeh with your fingers into little crumbles or simply grind it.
2. Heat olive oil a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and sauté for one or two minutes, then add the tempeh crumbles. Let them slightly brown for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Add taco seasoning and water and let cook for 10 more minutes or until water is mostly absorbed. Enjoy on tacos, tostadas, in burritos, enchiladas, fajitas or salads!
