Tempeh Tacos

1 pound tempeh (2 8-oz packages)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons tamari
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder or Mexican seasoning
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
12 taco shells or tortillas

Taco fixings:

Shredded lettuce
Feta cheese
Avocado slices

Crumble or chop tempeh into small pieces and place in a mixing bowl. Combine 1 tablespoon of the oil, the tamari, the lime juice, and the chili powder in a small bowl and pour this marinade over the tempeh. Let stand 10 to 30 minutes. The longer time allows more absorption of the flavor.

Heat the other tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add the marinated tempeh and keep mixture moving in the pan until tempeh turns golden brown. Add chopped cilantro just prior to serving. Warm taco shells according to directions on package. Fill taco shells with tempeh mixture and your favorite fixings.

Preparation time: 30 minutes to marinate, 5 minutes to assemble tacos.

Makes 6-8 servings
