Ahi Avocado Tempeh Lettuce Wraps With Creamy Almond Dipping Sauce [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
These lettuce wraps are a super-filling combination of sesame seed-coated avocado and crispy quick-skillet tempeh. They're then rolled up in a crisp romaine lettuce leaf with a crunchy cabbage slaw and almond butter dressing. To save even more time on these simple wraps, make the sauce ahead of time, or prep your tempeh in a large skillet at the beginning of the week.

Ahi Avocado Tempeh Lettuce Wraps With Creamy Almond Dipping Sauce [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Vegan

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces tempeh
  • 4 teaspoons tamari, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon, plus 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoons coconut oil

  • 1/8 of a head of red cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 tablespoon almond butter

  3. Cook tempeh 2 minutes, then add carrot, cabbage, 1 teaspoon tamari, and 1 teaspoon water. Cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables are slightly tender and the tempeh is browned.
