Want a balanced diet? Try a taco in both hands!
We’ve always loved vegetarianhere at the Plant Riot. Growing up in Australia, “shells” were crunchy things that came out of a box. The same box contained some powdered “ seasoning”, a little , and suggested adding things like lettuce, tomato, and beans. It wasn’t hard to make a vegan meal from these little kits, and we remember them fondly.
Ourgame never stopped improving, and now we enjoy these Mexican treasures with vegan fillings like tempeh, , and the freshest veggies. We also now know the joys of a soft corn tortilla – so much flavor, with none of the deep frying 😉!
Tempeh is a wonderful soy product that originates from Indonesia. Compared to tofu, tempeh has a firmer texture, making it a perfect meat substitute for vegan. It has a nutty, savory flavor, but also soaks up everything around it. If you’ve never had tempeh before, then our vegan recipe is a great place to start.
Spices are the variety of life!

It’s getting a little chili …
Now the fire comes in. We’re adding driedand some fresh jalapeños, which provide some pleasant warmth. However, you can play around with all kinds of flavorsome chilis, like habaneros, poblanos or serranos. Remember, chilis aren’t just for adding heat – balanced correctly they add tons of flavor! Just the thing to punch up a vegan recipe.
Into the Frying Pan …
Your veganare almost ready. The next step is a quick trip to the . Start by sauteing the onion, chili, and spices (hint: if you added lots of chilies, steer clear of those fumes 😉). After that, add tempeh and to the filling and fry a little longer. If things start sticking, just add a splash of water. Finally, add the tomato, get everything simmering and let those flavors mingle for a few minutes.
