Vegan Election Tacos

I've found that growing up in southern CA gives you mad cravings for mexican food throughout your life. Election tacos are my new favorite creation. In fact, I'll be having them for lunch today. Why are they election tacos? Well, it was election night, I wanted them and that's good enough for me.

Any other night they would be fried tempeh tacos. Ingredients:

Tempeh (boiled/simmered for 20 mins and then pan fried in sesame oil and finally splashed with some ume vinegar for extra saltiness)

Caramelized yellow onions


Hot sauce and cilantro to top it off

Not pictured are the sweet potato fries I had along side the tacos. Also I believe a SoCal thing, french fries and mexican food. After my feast I headed to a friends house for some cookie baking(I was less than thrilled with my cookies but everyone else seemed to enjoy them) and election watching. I'm awfully tired because I ended up not getting home until around 1am.

I must mention- YAY THAT PROP 2 PASSED IN CA!!!

What was your election meal?

OK, now that is truly a Texas mind connection, ha, and i agree with you I crave all things Tex-Mex, NM, or my fingers wrapped in a tortilla...little salsa and cheese too! Yours looks good, and I do eat more vegetarian these days.

i love your electron food!! especially because it's vegan and i have a random package of tempeh in the fridge. it's been in there for a month because i haven't decided how to use it. these sound delicious.

Oh, that sounds great! I was just snacking on popcorn while watching the elections.
