Actually, it was Taco Monday with leftover tacos for lunch on Tuesday. But Taco Monday doesn't quite have the same ring to it. Either way, I had these delicious Baja Lime Tempeh Tacos with Fresh Steamed Squash and Zucchini:
This quick weeknight meal that came together so quickly, I almost felt guilty about it. You see, the Baja lime flavor was courtesy of a bottle of Amy's Organic Baja Lime Marinade. I picked the stuff up at this crazy-awesome discount health food store in Asheville, North Carolina called Amazing Savings. It was only 99 cents!
Amazing Savings is a cheap health foodie's dream come true. While in Asheville for Veganstock, I bought Oat Dream oat milk and Hemp Dream hempmilk for $1.50, vegan gravy mix for 69 cents, Organicsville pomegranate salad dressing for 99 cents. Some of it was past the date a bit (like this marinade ... it expired in July), but none was old enough to actually have gone bad yet. For the record, the milks were all within their expiration safety dates. But I digress.
Anyway, I marinated some steamed tempeh in the lime marinade overnight. Then on Monday after work and the gym, I sauteed it with green bell pepper and garlic. I tucked the tempeh into corn tortillas with Nacho Follow Your Heart vegan cheeze, tomatoes, lettuce, black olives, and tequila lime salsa. So, so good.
