BBQ Tempeh Burrito + Meal Plan Monday Week 1 Results!

12 Jan

In my opinion, meal plan Monday (MPM) was a success.  Though meals were changed and snacks were omitted, I still used MPM as a guideline everyday and it helped.  This coming week I plan to use what I have experienced from last week to construct the new meal plan.  I’m very excited (:

BBQ Tempeh Burrito

Serves 2

 

1 package tempeh

2 teaspoons avocado oil (or any oil you prefer)

1/2 cup BBQ sauce, either jarred or homemade

1/4 cup water

1 bell pepper, sliced

1/2 yellow onion, sliced into half moons

1 cup shredded greens

Avocado, as garnish

Tortillas

 

Directions:

In a medium nonstick skillet, heat the 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat then add the sliced onions.  Cook 3-4 minutes, or until softened; add the bell pepper and cook a few minutes more.  Crumble the tempeh into the pan and add the BBQ sauce and water, stir well and bring to a simmer.  Let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes, or until warmed throughout and thickened.

Assemble the tacos by topping each tortilla with greens then dividing the BBQ tempeh mixture evenly, garnish with avocado if using.  Enjoy!!
