Smoky Tempeh, Apple, and Arugula Sandwich

[fa icon="calendar"] Nov 18, 2014 10:00:42 AM / by Sophia DeSantis


Makes 4 servings


· 1 package organic smoky or BBQ flavor tempeh strips (your brand may have some gluten from the soy sauce in the flavor) or make your own

· 2 red apples, sliced

· 1 small bunch arugula

· 8 slices sprouted wheat or gluten free bread

· Caramelized Onion & Sage Aioli (see recipe)

note: You can buy premade smoky or BBQ flavored tempeh or you can make your own, see my BBQ Tempeh Sandwich recipe for one idea. I used red apples for this but any apples would work. The Caramelized Onion & Sage Aioli recipe will yield much more than needed here but you can refrigerate or freeze for later use or make less.


Grill/bake tempeh strips on griddler, in toaster oven or in a pan on the stove until crisp. Slice apples and wash arugula.

Toast bread and smooth aioli on 4 of the slices. Divide tempeh, apple slices and arugula between the 4 sandwiches. Enjoy!
