Plain Tempeh 8 ounces, diced
2 t chili powder
2 t coriander
1/2 t white pepper
3 cloves garlic minced
1 or 2 jalapeno’s cut up
1/2 Tomato chopped
5 or 6 T of nori cut up
12 butter lettuce leaves – or can use tortilla wraps
Start by steaming the cut up tempeh for 15 minutes.
While tempeh cooking mix the spices in a bowl.
Heat 1/4 Cup of water in large skillet and cook the garlic
for a few minutes to soften. Add the nori, tomatoes,
jalapeno for 5 minutes to soften. Add seasonings and
tempeh cook for approximately 5 minutes and add
a little water if it evaporates.
Spoon on lettuce leaves and add a little avocado on each lettuce leaf
plus salsa. If you wish add some chopped cilantro.
