Vegan TLT Sandwich (Tempeh Lettuce Tomato)



Behold... a veganized version of the classic BLT sandwich! The bacon is replaced with a super simple, yet totally savory (and only 2-ingredient!) baked tempeh. I love this tempeh bacon in many other ways too - it's so versatile and tasty. It's great alongside a tofu scramblesteamed veggies, in rice bowls, or simply as a snack. Have fun customizing your sandwich with your own favorite toppings. I love avocado and sprouts, but feel free to spread on the more classic vegan mayo, hummus, mustard, etc.!

Come join The Garden Grazer on Instagram 🍓 and share a pic if you make this! I love to seeing what you guys cook up.

Vegan, gluten-free (with tamari and gf bread)
Makes enough tempeh for about 3 sandwiches

Ingredients
Sliced tomato
Small handful romaine/spinach
2 slices of your favorite bread
Customize it! Avocado/guacamole, vegan mayo, hummus, mustard, pesto, sprouts, etc.

{For the easy, savory tempeh}
8 oz. tempeh
3 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)

Directions
Cut tempeh into small strips.*
In a shallow dish, marinate tempeh in tamari. Flip to coat well and let sit for about 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350.
On a rimmed baking sheet, line with foil, then place tempeh strips (drizzle any leftover tamari on top for even more flavor if you'd like - though it does become saltier!)
Bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Prepare your sandwich: layer bread, tomatoes, lettuce, tempeh, and any other toppings of choice.

*Cutting the tempeh: I end up with 12 pieces by cutting the tempeh block into 6 pieces, then halving those to make them thinner.
