If I prepare something vegetarian or vegan it has to be something with 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 mushrooms, bell peppers or kidney bean.

Tempting vegan tempeh burrito ingredients

Tempeh is a great example of food with a bite or food you can give a bite. It is made from soy and neutral in taste so it can easily take on any flavor you add. Tempeh is a rich source of protein, high in vitamines and low fat.

When I make taco meat I add a number of ingredients like onion, garlic and bell peppers in a hot pan until they are soft and translucent. Then I add a number of spices like chili powder or hot sauce. I always you some tomato puree and some vegetable stock. To make tempeh meat I use the same ingredients. To start I take a tempeh block of about 200 grams apart. Then I use all the ingredients mentioned above and let the tempeh meat sauté with some vegetable stock. In less than 20 minutes you have some great flavored tempeh meat.

While the tempeh meat is simmering, cook some Basmati rice and boil some green beans. Make some healthy guacamole in less than 5 minutes and then start combining it into a burrito.

I use big flour tortillas to start with. Then I layer it with two big spoons full of rice. Second some tempeh meat with cooked grean beans on top. To give it some extra bite two spoons full of kidney beans before adding guacamole. Top it of with a generous helping of vegan cheese before wrapping up the burrito.

When wrapped into a burrito I also wrap it in parchment papier and cut the burrito in half. Server immediately.
