Tempeh Tacos

March 5, 2019

I am a lover of tacos (slight obsession). Taco Tuesday? Why limit to a single day?!

So when I decided to make some changes in my nutrition lifestyle and adopt the clean, plant-based diet I needed to find alternatives to still enjoy my favourite Mexican inspired dish.

This gluten-free, vegan taco recipe is sure to keep your taste buds happy.
