What is the best vegan burrito recipe? A tempeh burrito seasoned with delicious burrito spice mix, rice and vegetables. The secret is cooking the tempeh and turn it into vegan meat. It is a very simple recipe and a full dinner. So are you ready to learn how you can make this tempting vegan tempeh burritos? Lets get started!
Have you ever cooked with tempeh? I know tempeh mostly from the Indonesia kitchen. Like tempeh sambal goreng which is a great condiment with rice recipes.
But there a way more options with tempeh. Tempeh can take on so many flavors. I have made tempeh that taste like Paella rice while I als made tempeh that tasted like taco meat.
So why not try a bit of both by preparing it like meat and eating it with rice and a lot of vegetables and create a delicious burrito? If I prepare a vegetarian or vegan recipe it has to have a bite.
That is why I like to add spicy flavors to my recipes. The spicier the better and combine it with high texture vegetables like:
- bell peppers
- kidney beans
Tempeh is a great example of food with a bite or food you can give a bite.
And it gets even better:
- It is made from soy and neutral in taste so it can easily take on any flavor you add.
- Further it is a rich source of protein, high in vitamines and low fat. So a healthy ingredient to use.
