- Combine all the Creole Mustard sauce ingredients and set aside.
- In a wide-bottom bowl, combine the flour, oregano, basil, chili powder, salt and pepper and mix well.
- In a small bowl, combine the beaten egg and yellow mustard.
- Slice the tempeh patty once across depth, then again horizontally, to make 4 thin patties. Cut again cross-wise into 1-inch wide pieces.
- Heat the oil to a large skillet over medium flame.
- Dredge all the patties in the flour mix, coat them with the mustard mix, and dredge in flour once more.
- Add coated tempeh pieces to the frying pan. Cook in heated oil over medium for 2 minutes on each side (or until golden), then flip. Cool on a paper towel-lined plate.
- Layer each tortilla with lettuce, tomato, tempeh, and Creole Mustard Sauce, and wrap.
