Lunch Wraps – Tempeh with a Great Taste

Tempeh Wraps

It’s lunch time and you only eat a Plant Based Diet. Tired of the same boring salad to prepare?

I found this idea looking through Dr. Gregor’s How Not To Die CookBook Click here to get the book.
I changed it up some by adding what I had around the kitchen.

I made this with Chili Powder, White Pepper and Coriander mixed with 3 cloves of

chopped garlic.

I put some avocado and Green Salsa on this as the finishing touches. It was so good!

Here is my Version of the Tempeh Vera Cruz Lettuce Wraps.

Makes 2-4 Servings Depending on how hungry you are and if you add more veggies.

 

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

1 Avocado

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.

This recipe will contribute to a serving of beans from the

Daily Dozen Requirement App.

Just made this today and the two others I shared it

with were very impressed.
