Hawaiian BBQ Tacos!

In honor of Rodeo going on in the month of March, we wanted some good yummy BBQ. This recipe is from “My Beef with Meat” from the Engine 2 Diet. If you haven’t heard of the Engine 2 Diet, this is the second book Rip Esselstyn has come out with. He’s a Texas firefighter who went Plant Based after the men at his station suffered a series of health conditions. It’s a good book and has lots of great recipes to fill up manly men, believe us! Our manly men loved this one….and so did we!!

Here’s the recipe for 8-10 tacos:


10 corn tortillas, toasted

16 ounces tempeh, crumbled

2 tablespoons tamari sauce

One 16-ounce jar barbecue sauce <– use a mustard based sauce like Carolina Gold

1 cup shredded lettuce

1 to 2 cups fresh pineapple, cut lengthwise, cored, and sliced into thin pieces

1 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves and sprigs


Place the crumbled tempeh in a nonstick pan over medium heat and cook, stirring, until heated.

Stir in the tamari. Add the barbecue sauce and stir until all of the tempeh is coated with the sauce.

Make those yummy tacos & enjoy!
