Sjoe nou: Turbo tempeh tacos

Family taco night in just 20 minute! I am using a vegan alternative in these tacos called tempeh, which is a plant-based protein that originated in Indonesia. It’s made from fermented soya beans that have been formed into a block. Unlike tofu, it has a meaty, firm texture and yummy nutty flavour.

TAKES 20 minute


2 x 200g packs of tempeh

1 tbsp olive oil

1 small brown onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, verpletter

1 teelepel gerookte paprika

1 tsp ground cumin

½ tsp chilli flakes

1½ tbsp light soy sauce

½ tbsp maple syrup

4 soft corn tortillas, warmed

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


½ small red cabbage, dun gesny

200g cherry tomatoes, quartered

2 ripe avocados, mashed with a squeeze of lime juice

a small bunch of coriander, leaves picked

a pinch of chilli flakes

1 lime, sliced into wedges

  • Place the tempeh in a bowl and crumble into small chunks with your hands.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and fry for 3 minutes until softened. Add the tempeh and fry for a further 5 minutes until slightly golden.
  • Add the garlic and fry for 30 seconds until fragrant before adding the spices, soy sauce and maple syrup. Stir everything together and fry for a further 2 minute. Season to taste.
  • Spoon the tempeh mixture into the warm tortillas with the red cabbage, tomatoes and mashed avocado. Top with a scattering of coriander leaves, chilli flakes and a squeeze of lime juice.
