Hey guys! Happy Tuesday. What’s the good word? We saw sun here today! It was pretty much amazing. :) Absence really does make the heart grow fonder.
I made a pretty delicious dinner tonight and I’m excited to share it with you. My mom used to make the best chicken fajitas when I was growing up and I had a hankering for them in the worst way today. So, naturally, I picked up some trusty, “meaty” tempeh, green bell pepper, onion, whole wheat tortillas and some black beans.
By sauteeing the onions and pepper in some olive oil slowly on medium heat they got so nice and caramelized and sweet (yum yum). I then added thinly sliced tempeh and seasoned everything with salt and pepper. While that all was going on, I was heating the black beans with cumin, chili powder and garlic powder.
Once the tempeh was heated and a little crispy, I was good to serve.
So tasty – especially with some Trader Joe’s roasted tomatillo salsa on top. The tempeh is definitely a good vegetarian stand-in for chicken. Mmm…
