Vegetarian Tempeh Taco Recipe
Use tempeh instead of meat as a filler for vegetarian tacos, and top with your favorite vegetarian taco fillings, such as salsa, fresh lettuce, cheese or sour cream, or keep it vegan and add guacamole for extra flavor instead of cheese and sour cream. Vegetarian tacos are a quick and easy dinner that the whole family will eat up!
