Cook’s Tips

  • Smash up the avocado and make a simple guacamole.
  • Make the vegan tempeh meat AND tortillas in a big batch. Freeze anything extra and simply microwave to defrost them or warm slowly on the stove. Add a little water to restore the consistency. 
  • If there are any leftovers, keep them in the fridge for up to three days in separate airtight containers.
  • Keep tempeh meat for up to three months in your freezer.
