Optional toppings:


  • Put olive oil in a hot pan. Add chopped onion and cook on medium heat until translucent.
  • Add garlic and cook about thirty seconds more.
  • Add tempeh, pinto beans, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, tomato paste, tamari, vegetable broth, salt, and pepper. Cook until tempeh is browned and liquid is reduced.
  • Serve over rice and chopped lettuce. Top with salsa, chopped tomatoes, and chopped Kalamata olives.


*If you are gluten free, be sure to read the label on the tempeh. Some are made with grains containing gluten. I buy one made with only soy.
