Then, flip the tempeh and wait until the upper side of the tempeh turns brown too. After that, make it into high heat and cook the bell pepper and onion altogether to the skillet for about 2 minutes.

3Lower the heat then pour the Korean sauce into the tempeh mixture. Cook and stir until the mixture combined or until the sauce cover up the tempeh and other ingredients. After well cooked, turn off the stove and add the scallions and sesame seeds and stir well.

4In a large plate, put a slice of wheat tortilla and give a slice of lettuce leaves, sliced avocados, kimchi and the tempeh mixture. Warp the two sides of tortilla and roll it over.
