  • 1 red bell pepper, finely sliced

  • 1 lime, sliced into wedges

  • 1 large avocado, mashed

  • 200g of carrots, finely sliced

  • 200g of mushrooms, finely sliced

  • 20ml of rapeseed oil

  • 170g pack of our Tempeh Mince

  • 200g of your favourite tomato sauce (bought or made)

  • 400g can of black beans

  • 200g of tortilla chips

  • 200g of vegan sour cream

  • 40g of coriander, chopped


  1. Prepare the garlic, red onion, carrots, mushrooms, coriander, tomatoes, bell pepper, lime and avocado

  3. Add in the garlic and one third of the red onions and cook them for 3 minutes

  4. Add in the carrots and mushrooms and cook them for a further 7 minutes

  5. As these are cooking, in a large saucepan, heat another 10ml of rapeseed oil for 1 minute

  6. Add in the mince to this saucepan and mix frequently for about 5 minutes, to ensure it doesn’t catch

  7. Reduce the heat, then add the garlic, onion, carrots and mushrooms mixture to the mince, followed by the tomato sauce and the black beans, continuing to mix them together for 10 mins 

  8. As this is cooking, to make the guacamole, mix the mashed avocado, a third of the tomatoes, the next third of the red onion mixture and half the juice of the lime together 

  9. Then, to make the pico de gallo, mix the rest of the tomatoes, the remaining third of the red onions and the remaining juice of the lime together
