Black Bean & Tempeh Tacos w Cashew Cheese Sauce

Happy Friday! Tonight I’m making my Crispy Cauliflower Tacos, & I realized I haven’t shared my Black Bean & Tempeh Taco recipe with y’all yet 🙂 We always have lettuce and tomato with our tacos, but I love changing up the filling and sauce. And I always have to have Lost Art Cultured Food’s Caraway and Cabbage to put on top of mine . . . this stuff is so good I can’t even tell you.
