  1. This is one of my favorite recipes I’ve found since I went vegan. Absolutely awesome and an easy meal to make.

  2. So I figured it’s time to review. I’ve made like 20 times and it’s such a hit in my house. My husband and kids (4, 8, 12) all love it so much. I’ve made it for guests and they all ask for the recipe. It nicely masks the bitterness of the tempeh. If you’re debating, just make it already!!

    1. Luisa! Thank you so much for your sweet words. I’m so so happy you and your family loves this recipe! Thank you for your review and for trying it out. 🙂

  3. I had all my spicy mayo and sauce mixed up and ready to go. I pull some tempeh out of my fridge and…..it was moldy! Boo! Then I decided to put the sauce on some vegetarian chik’n pieces and add all the other listed ingredients, and it was still a super delicious burrito! I am excited to try again with the ingredients as listed but just think this would work well with any plant-based protein. Yum! Thanks for a great recipe!

  4. 5 stars
    I can’t believe that I haven’t rated this one! I make it all the time and even non-vegans LOVE IT. I usually double or triple the tempeh sauce since I’m super saucy 🙂 I love to make Asian pickled cucumbers on the side (just add chopped cucs with soy, rice vinegar, ginger, sesame seed, garlic and let it sit in a mason jar for a while!)

    I tried this recipe last night. What a surprise! It was super delicious and original. I marinated the carrots in some soy sauce, vinegar and gochujang to give it even more taste. I used japanese spicy mayonnaise on the burrito. I will make this again that’s for sure. Thank you.
