  • Slice avocado in half, pit it and use a fork to mash the flesh to make it spreadable. Spread about a quarter of avocado on a slice of bread, add a lettuce leaf and a slice of tomato following 2-3 vegan tempeh bacon strips. Cover with another slice of bread. Continue with the rest of the sandwiches. Enjoy!



Cook’s Tips

  • Make the vegan tempeh bacon in a large batch. It keeps well for up to a month in the fridge.
  • Toast the bread beforehand for an extra crunch.
  • For another smoky, vegan sandwich idea check out my vegan pulled jackfruit sandwich. Jackfruit is another plant-based meat alternative and wonder ingredient. Because of its soaking abilities, and its stringy, meat-like texture it makes a fantastic pulled pork substitute. I love it piled high on a toasted bun and served with a crisp coleslaw.
