Step One

Saute onions until translucent. Add the crumbled tempeh along with taco seasoning, sautéing them all together until the tempeh is browned. Add tomato sauce and water and mix to combine.

Step Two

Cut the zucchini in half and scoop out the fleshy middle. Evenly spread the taco-spiced tempeh into your prepared zucchini packing it down as much as possible and rounding up the top.
