Ingredients

    2 packages of tempeh
    2 medium onions
    4 cloves of garlic
    1 green, yellow or red pepper (your choice of which looks best)
    1 jalapeno pepper (if you like hot things like we do)
    4 tablespoons of Bragg (we use this) or soy sauce with no salt
    4 tablespoons of olive oil (cold-pressed is best)
    1 1/2 cups of pinto beans
    2 tomatoes (diced)
    lettuce (shredded)
    cilantro to make look nice

Directions

Makes 6 servings

Shred the tempeh with a cheese grater or you can just chopped it up nice.

Chop the onions, the garlic and the peppers and combine with the olive oil in a pan on medium heat (not too hot or the olive oil won't be good)
Cooks this for 3 minutes until the onions go brown.

Add the tempeh, the Bragg and the pinto beans and simmer on low for 10 more minutes.

Add water if you need to to keep it moist.

Warm the tortillas.

Roll the tempeh mixture in the tortillas and add lettuce, chopped tomatoes, more peppers if you like, cilantro and maybe some parsley if you like this.

    Is it 415 calories per taco? If so, I could make it with ground sirloin for much lower calories. - 4/4/09
