Tempeh avocado sandwhich

So I have been pining for a sandwich since I turned somewhat vegan but wasn’t sure how to make one without using my go-to turkey. The solution came to me when I was simultaneously wondering how I could use the remainder of the tempeh I bought a few weeks ago. Eureka! A tempeh sandwich! I used veganaise (a vegan version of mayo – duh), tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, red onion, whole wheat thin buns and tempeh (obvi). I kid you not, it was phenom! The tempeh was bacon flavored so it was like a supped-up vegan version of the BLT! I washed it down with some lentil chips and was full until dinner – that never happens! For those of you who don’t know, tempeh is a meat substitute that is made from fermented soy beans. It is high in protein, cholesterol-free and tastes way better than tofu in my opinion. If you are a texture person though you may not like it; it is rather grainy but I thought it was fab! I will definitely be making this bad boy again 🙂

Have you ever tried tempeh? If so, how did you use it?
