    Start the salsa verde

    Make the slaw
    While the tomatillos char, in a large bowl, combine the cabbage, white bottoms of the scallions, and as much of the the lime zest and juice as you’d like; drizzle with olive oil and season with S&P to taste. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes while you prep the next steps.

    Finish the salsa verde
    In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add ¾ of the chopped tomatillos; season with S&P. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, until completely softened. Transfer to a bowl. Add the honey; season with S&P to taste. Set aside to cool.

    Cook the tempeh
    While the tomatillos cook, in a second large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the tempeh; season with the spice blend and S&P. Cook, 4 to 5 minutes, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.

    Heat the tortillas & serve
    Heat the reserved pan on medium. Working one or two at a time (so that they do not overlap), toast the tortillas, 30 seconds to 1 minute per side, until lightly browned. Divide the tempeh, cabbage slaw, and salsa between the warmed tortillas. Garnish with the remaining tomatillos and green tops of the scallions. Serve the remaining salsa and slaw on the side. Bon appétit!
