So I tried tempeh once already, and thought I’d see how it works without falling on the Asian crutch of soy sauce and stir fry. This time, I sliced the tempeh length-wise and sauteed in some oil, lime juice, and chili powder. Adding some avocado, onions, and tomatoes to this and it was a really, really good taco.
How does it compare to actual meat? It stands up pretty well, and took about a fourth of time! The chili powder changed the taste, so it didn’t seem Asian at all, instead I thought I was eating ground beef that had been packed together into sausage-like rolls…pretty intriguing.
