Walnut Taco Mixture
1⁄4 cup (40g) walnuts
150g plain tempeh crumbled

1 tbs nutritional yeast or more to taste
1 tsp chipotle chilli seasoning or to taste
Place tomatoes, peppers, onion and coriander in a bowl and gently toss to mix. Squeeze over lime, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
To make the Taco mixture, place all ingredients in a food processor, season and pulse to just mix and still have texture. (it should resemble mince).
Place a small non-stick frypan over medium heat.
Add taco mix and cook for 4-5 minutes or until warmed through and tempeh is cooked.
At the same time heat another frypan over medium heat and cook tortillas for a few minutes each side to warm.
Divide taco mixture between tortillas, top with salsa and extra coriander leaves and serve with lime wedges.
