I still have not caught the stomach flu that’s everywhere, but the co-worker next to me did this week, ack! And it’s not pleasant, one guy was out of work for a week with it! So I’m still on high paranoia alert disinfecting regularly and sterilizing my cube at work about every 10 minutes. I’ve also been consuming plenty of probiotics and researching the benefits – strengthening immunity, helping blood pressure, helping IBS, etc. Yes please! Tonight I tried another raw tempeh recipe in a spicy collard wrap that was quick and easy.
Spicy Tempeh Filling
- 1 8 oz. package of tempeh, rough chopped
- 4 tsp. chili power
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- 1/4 tsp. cumin
- 1/4 tsp. agave nectar
- 1/4 onion, chopped (optional)
Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until well mixed, but still chunky. Use in vegan tacos, raw wraps, or sprinkle in salads. Makes 2-4 servings.
I de-stemmed a huge collard leaf to create the wraps.
And layered raw walnut cheddar sauce I whipped up in the Vitamix over the tempeh filling.
Then just layered on sliced tomatoes.
For an easy and casual dinner.
The filling would also work well in vegan tacos, tossed into salads, or layered onto bread and cracker. The flavor had a nice spicy, taco filling-like kick while the creamy cheddar sauce complimented the nutty texture.

The filling looks great and I was just at TJs tonite. I need to try their tempeh. I always say that but I should!
You should, it’s the cheapest organic tempeh I’ve found. I usually buy at least two every time I go.

Yum! I have been having bizarre tempeh cravings recently. I wish I had remembered to pick up some from TJs when I was visiting my parents. [I am sadly an hour away from one here in Virginia.]

Yikes, hope you stay clear of that stomach flu!!!
Me too, so far so good. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Yum! I love tempeh, and TJ’s is such a good deal.
This looks fantastic.
Do true on the TJ’s tempeh, I usually buy multiple packages on each trip.
Great idea and technique! Excited to try it.
Thanks, having fun with tempeh lately. :-)
When I was in Asheville, they would regularly have either tempeh burrito filling or veggie chili made with tempeh & it was spicy deliciousness.
Nice, I’m such a fan of spicy lately with my sinuses acting up.
those look fabulous! love your ring and watch….super nice :)
Aw, thanks! :-)
First time here. May I ask, are you using some kind of raw-vegan tempeh or just the traditional cooked one?
Hi and welcome. It’s the precooked Trader Joe’s Organic Tempeh, so not raw. But you can use a raw variety if you’d like.
