what you'll need

Tempeh Bacon

  • 8 oz tempeh thinly sliced into ¼” thick strips
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil or other neutral oil
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Sandwich Assembly

  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • avocado mayo
  • 4 leaves Romaine lettuce
  • 1 beefsteak tomato sliced
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves chopped

let's do it

  • In a shallow pan, combine the soy sauce, liquid smoke, oil, maple syrup, and pepper. Mix to combine then submerge the tempeh strips into the marinade. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the marinated tempeh onto the baking sheet and pour the marinade on top.
  • Bake for about 10-15 minutes until crispy on the outside but soft on the inside.
  • To make the sandwich, generously mayo one side of the bread and place into a hot pan over medium-high heat. Let cook for about 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the pan.
  • Spread another layer of mayo on the non-toasted side of the bread and layer with lettuce, cooked tempeh bacon, tomatoes, and sprinkle of basil. Place the second piece of bread on top, slice, and serve!
