Tempeh Tacos are a great plant based recipe idea. Who doesn’t want to try vegan mexican food recipes? These tacos prove that vegan food can be delicious. That why I love this Easy vegan Tempeh Tacos Recipe.
Tempeh is a soy product that is less processed than tofu. This soy product originates from Indonesia. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form. Tempeh makes amazing vegan mexican food recipes.
The texture of tempeh is great for meat substitution. Tofu is soft and silky and tempeh is tough and chunky. It’s a great ingredient for any vegan meal recipe. Tempeh is a plant based food that is high in protein.
One half cup of tempeh has 160 calories, 9 grams of fat, 342 mg potassium, 8 grams of carbohydrates, 15.5 grams of protein, 9% calcium, 12.5% iron, 10% Vitamin B6, and 16.5% magnesium. Taco shells should be vegan safe with most brands. Just check the ingredients.
Old El Paso Taco Shells are vegan friendly. This brand even offers a “taco kit.” It contains 12 hard taco shells, taco spice mix, and mild taco sauce. This vegan mexican food recipe are fresh, gluten free, and plant based.
Or you can make your own vegan taco spice blend such as this one from PETA.org:
I prefer Daiya Brand cheese for these tempeh tacos. Daiya cheese is amazing in vegan mexican food recipes.
I used orange cheddar flavor to best create the authentic taco taste. This plant cheese looks and tastes just like the real thing.
1/4 cup shredded Daiya cheese there are 80 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 7 grams of total carbs, 1 gram of protein, and 10% calcium.
Other brands of plant based non dairy cheese include:
1. Treeline Treenut Cheese
2. Punk Rawk Labs Dairy-Free Nutmilk Cheeses
3. Vegan Chao Cheese Slices by Field Roast
4. Fresh VeganMozz by Miyoko’s Creamery
5. Daiya Medium Cheddar Style Farmhouse Block
6. Kite Hill Cream Cheese Style Spreads
7. Daiya Mozzarella Style Shreds
