1 tsp oregano 1 tsp smoked paprika 1 tsp chipotle powder 1 tbsp soy sauce Salt, to taste 6 taco shells Extra vegetables of your choosing to fill tacos


  • Add diced onion to a pan and begin to cook. Add in minced garlic and allow to cook until onions are softened, using a splash of broth to prevent sticking. Crumble in tempeh and mix to combine. Add in the cup of broth, all the remaining seasonings and some soy sauce.

  • Allow broth to come to a simmer and stir to prevent sticking.

  • Once most of the liquid is cooked off, add salt to taste, stir and set aside.

  • Prepare tacos by stuffing with tempeh and additional vegetables as desired.
