[time] 1 hour
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with parchment. Cut the peppers in half lengthways, remove the seeds and stalks and cut into 2-3cm thick slices. Roast for 20-25 minutes until slightly blackened.
  2. Meanwhile halve the avocado, and scoop the flesh into a small bowl. Mash with lime juice and sea salt. Place in the fridge.
  3. When peppers are soft, remove from the oven and turn down the heat to 150°C.
  4. In a large frying pan, heat the coconut oil and add the garlic, paprika, cumin, chilli flakes, coconut aminos and tempeh. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the tempeh is coated.
  5. Then add tomato paste, cherry tomatoes and cooked peppers. Fry for a further 1-2 minutes. Take off the heat and place to one side.
  6. Line another baking tray with parchment. Lay out the taco shells and bake for 10 minutes.
  7. To assemble the tacos, add a tablespoon of mashed avocado, then a handful of the lettuce, two tablespoons of the tempeh mix and finish with the coriander leaves. Repeat until all shells are filled.
  8. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over and an ice cold can of Nexba Kombucha.
AvocadosThe humble avo is a classic addition to any brekkie, lunch or dinner and for good reason. This versatile fruit (yep, it’s a fruit!) is not only delicious but is also an incredible source of a wide range of nutrients. They're loaded with healthy fats, fibre and are a good source of Vitamin C, B6, K and E.
GarlicLove it or hate it, garlic boasts a host of great health benefits. When chopped, allicin is produced, which is a powerful enzyme that helps to boost immune function, reduce inflammation and offer antioxidant benefits. Plus, garlic is full of prebiotics, which help to keep the probiotics in your gut functioning normally.
