Tempeh Tacos With Breaded And Baked Cauliflower Recipe

By Veegs

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 minutes


8 ounces original tempeh

3 tablespoons hot sauce (such as Frank’s), divided

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened dairy-free milk, divided

1 small head cauliflower

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 tablespoons taco seasoning

½ cup panko breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 cups shredded romaine lettuce

8 taco shells

2 Roma tomatoes, chopped

Lime wedges (optional)

Salsa (optional)


1Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2Cut the tempeh widthwise into ¼-inch strips, then tear those into about ½-inch pieces.

3Mix 1 tablespoon hot sauce and 2 tablespoons milk together in a small bowl. Add tempeh and toss. Let marinate for 1 hour.

4Meanwhile, prepare the cauliflower by cutting the florets into small bite-size pieces.

5Mix 2 tablespoons of hot sauce and ¼ cup milk in a large bowl. Add the cauliflower and toss.

6Add the flour, taco seasoning, panko, and nutritional yeast to a large bowl and mix well.

7Take the cauliflower out of the wet mixture and add to the flour mixture and toss to coat all of the florets. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes. You will be able to pierce them easily with a fork when done.

8While the cauliflower is baking, heat the oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat and add the tempeh. Cook for about 2 minutes, flipping occasionally, until the pieces become golden brown. Remove from the heat to a paper towel.

9Assemble the taco by laying some lettuce in the bottom of a shell and spooning in some tempeh, cauliflower, and tomato. Serve with lime wedges and salsa, if desired.
