Back to the 'nomicon, which we have been diligently working our way through while trying to avoid some of the more wtf recipes hidden within. Those missteps aside, there are some great ideas in the book, like these tacos:
Baja-style Grilled Tempeh Tacos
Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero, Veganomicon (2007)
- 3 cu. shredded cabbage
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1/4 cu. apple cider vinegar
- 2 pickled jalapenos, diced
- salt, pepper
- 3/4 cu. soy yoghurt
- 3 Tbs. lime juice
- 2 Tbs. grapeseed or avocado oil
- 1/3 cu. cilantro
- 3/4 cu. beer
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 Tbs. peanut oil
- 2 Tbs . soy sauce
- 2 Tbs. tamari
- 3 tsp. chile powder
- 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
- corn tortillas
- the usual taco suspects: radishes, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, salsa, etc...
For the "crema": blend all the ingredients together and let it chill for an hour.
For the tempeh: Divide the tempeh into thin, grill-able portions then throw them into a pot of boiling water and let them simmer for 10 minutes. Mix all the marinade ingredients together and marinate the tempeh for an hour, turning occasionally.
Now you have an hour to kill, if you can wait that long. Dos Equis anyone?
Afterward, grill, broil or pan fry the tempeh, spooning some marinade on them as you go. Heat up the corn tortillas and set up a little taco buffet. These are some kick ass tacos.
Also, in the background of the photo is the quinoa, black bean and mango salad, also from the 'nomicon, which is a really great salad.
