La Fiesta Taco Salad:
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small yellow onion, chopped
2 ears corn, kernels cut off
8 oz. tempeh, cubed
1 (15 oz.) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon taco seasoning (add more to taste if necessary)
8 oz. romaine lettuce salad
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup grated sharp white cheddar cheese (to make this vegan, choose a non-dairy alternative such as Daiya or omit cheese)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 lime, sliced for garnish (optional)
1 bag tortilla chips
favorite salad dressing
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and saute until starting to brown, about 7 minutes. Add corn kernels and tempeh, and saute another 2 minutes, or until corn is tender. Add beans, taco seasoning and 1 tablespoon water and saute another minute. Remove from heat and let cool slightly or until room temperature.
Place lettuce in a large serving bowl. Pile tempeh mixture on top. Arrange avocado, tomatoes, cheese, and cilantro on top of tempeh mixture. Garnish with lime wedges and serve with chips and dressing.
Yum! Thanks Yummy Mummy - this is definitely Sexy Veggie approved!
Now for those Sexy Veggie Margaritas!
Simply mix your favorite tequila (we prefer Patron silver) with fresh lime juice, agave nectar, and a splash of soda water. You may have to play around with the portions to get the flavor you want. If you like your margaritas sweet squeeze in some more agave, or if you prefer them citrus-y and fresh go ahead and add some more lime juice! Now shake, serve and enjoy!
