Serve the tempeh mixture tucked into warmed fajita wraps with salsa and guacamole.


Serves 4

Ingredients:
8 oz. block tempeh, any variety
4 T. fajita seasoning (reserve 2 T. for cooking)
2 T. vegetable oil
oil for cooking
6 sweet peppers, a combination of green, yellow, orange, and red
2 medium-sized yellow onions
1 jalapeno pepper
1 package fajita wraps

To Prepare:
Cut tempeh block in half lengthwise, then slice into 1/4- to 1/2-inch wide strips. Place in a lidded plastic container, add two tablespoons of the vegetable oil and two tablespoons of the fajita seasoning. Cover container and turn to coat. Tempeh will be completely marinated and ready to cook in approximately 35 minutes, but improves if marinated up to 6-8 hours.

Heat oil in a large skillet (preferably cast iron) until hot but not smoking. Fry marinated tempeh until golden brown, then add roughly chopped seeded peppers and onions.

Turn up the heat slightly and stir fry the peppers to lock in flavors. Cook for about 10 minutes or until peppers start to blacken. If necessary add a bit more oil while cooking and season with reserved fajita spice to taste.

When peppers are thoroughly cooked, serve tempeh mixture tucked into warmed fajita wraps topped with salsa and guacamole.
