Everything about this taco meat is like the real thing - texture, taste, and look. Made with Tempeh, taco spice, and chopped vegetables, this taco meat will fool your most committed meat eater. This is easy to do and delicious. If you are vegan vegetarian you do not have to give up tacos!
Tempeh is a great meat alternative and full of nutrients as well. When I check out at the market with tempeh the checker oftens asks "What do you do with that???". I explain that we make hamburgers, tacos, sloppy joes, and many other things with it. A look of "how?" appears on their face.
