tempeh sandwich

tempeh sandwich, Sandwich with tempeh, vegan recipe

BBQ tempeh in a sandwich is a great option to make your breakfast more interesting. Although this sandwich can be eaten at any point, to be honest! I like it as tempeh is super healthy, provides with some extra protein and the flavors just go so well together!

You can marinade the tempeh for few hours to make sure it is very flavorsome, but you can skip it and proceed straight to cooking it on the pan. It still will be quite tasty. I am using tempeh in a shape of a roll - my slices are pretty small. But you can use any tempeh - the "worst" that can happen is that your sandwich will be stuffed - sounds like a win to me!

If you have an option use wholegrain bread - it is so much more helthful than the white bread. In the recipe I am mentioning the veggies I think it goes well with but you can add anything you like! 🙂

Makes: 2 sandwiches           Time: 8h15 min (15 min prep + 8 h wait)



BBQ tempeh:
tempeh slices
6 g (2 tsp) smoked paprika powder
3 g (1 tsp) onion powder
3 g (1 tsp) sweet paprika powder
1,5 g (½ tsp) hot paprika powder
30 g (2 Tbsp) soy sauce
3 Tbsp water

4 slices of wholegrain or gluten-free bread
100 g hummus
handful baby spinach
8 tomato slices
8 cucumber slices
handful alfalfa sprouts


1. Start with preparing the marinade for tempeh. Mix all spices and water in a bowl and soak tempeh in it. Set aside for 1-8 h.

2. Place the tempeh with the marinade on the pan and heat up. Cook until the liquid evaporates turning tempeh, so it cooks on both sides.

3. Spread hummus on bread slices.

4. Assemble sandwiches using spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, sprouts, and tempeh and enjoy!

Notes and tips:

1. You can skip the marinating time if you have to. Just mix tempeh with all the spices and move straight to the pan.
