Sweet & Spicy Tempeh Wrap

BY : PUBLISHED : January 26th, 2013 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

This is a quick meal or snack that has some of the greatest tempeh I’ve made, all in about 15 minutes.

Whip up the tempeh and add it to a tortilla with your favorite veggies – preferably something green, red, and orange. I used cucumber, lettuce, and carrot.
