  • 3 TBSP oil divided
  • 1 onion peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic mashed
  • 1 block tempe broken up
  • 1 TBSP soy sauce plus extra tsp if you need
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 punnet mushrooms sliced
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 can black beans or other bean of your choice
  • 1 heaped cup spinach
  • 1 cup kale leaves only
  • 5 sprigs cilantro
  • 5 TBSP hummus
  • 5 tsp vegan mayonaise optional
  • sprinkle vegan cheese optional
  • vegan butter oiling the pan


For the filling:

  • Add 1 TBSP oil to a pan and sauté the onions for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Add a pinch of any spices you like for example garlic salt, everyday seasoning, and Italian herbs. Add the garlic for the last minute and stir well. 
  • In a separate pan, while the onions are cooking, add 1 TBSP oil and break up the tempe into small pieces like crumbles. Add the soy sauce and maple syrup and sauté until golden brown. Set aside
  • When the onions are done, set them aside and sauté the mushrooms in 1 TBSP of oil. Add more if you need.
  • Put all the ingredients together in one pan- the onions, mushrooms and tempe and then add the can of beans, can of corn, spinach, kale, and cilantro and sauté until the spinach wilts. Set aside.

Preparing the tortillas:

  • Lay out a round tortilla and "butter" it with 1 TBSP of hummus, 1 tsp of vegan mayonnaise (as much as you like) and a sprinkle of vegan cheese. 
  • Put a small amount of vegan butter in a pan (less than a tsp), lay half of the tortilla in the pan (a half circle) and use a spoon to put the filling in. Fold the top over and press down. Butter the top half of the tortilla lightly with vegan butter.
  • Cook until golden brown on both sides. Fill as many tortillas as possible, probably about 5-6 depending on the size of tortilla, I used medium-large ones.
  • Cut with scissors and eat with your hands. Enjoy!
