Instructions

To make the rice, fluff the cooked rice and place in a bowl, gently folding with the vinegars. Set aside.

To make the tempeh, place the sesame oil, tamari and tempeh in a nonstick skillet. Sauté on medium-high heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, and add 1⁄4 cup (60 ml) of teriyaki sauce. Sauté on medium heat until glazed and golden, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Set aside.

To make the vegetables, place the oil, garlic, snow peas, bell pepper and baby corn in a nonstick skillet. Sauté for 2 minutes. Add 3 tablespoons (45 ml) of teriyaki sauce and the water chestnuts, stir well and cook until tender but still crisp, about 4 minutes. Set aside.

To assemble the tacos, in the center of each tortilla, add 1 tablespoon (12 g) of rice, 2 tablespoons (20 g) of veggies, 1 tablespoon (12 g) of kimchi (if using) and 6 cubes of tempeh. Drizzle 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of teriyaki sauce over the filling. Top with sesame seeds, Sriracha to taste and scallions. Drizzle with sesame oil, fold and serve immediately. There will be leftover tempeh, rice and vegetables.
