Tempeh Bacon Sandwich

tempeh bacon sandwich

I ordered this sandwich a while back at a restaurant in my area and liked it so much I wanted to try making it at home. It’s become a staple recipe for me ever since for several reasons. First, It’s easy and quick to make. I tend to work late so it’s nice to come home and be able to quickly put together something to eat. Second, the ingredients are versatile. I typically have most of these ingredients on hand at any given time. Any of these items can be substituted for something else or left out entirely.

Use a high quality bread for this sandwich such as Silver Hills’ Max’s Flax. It’s dense and holds up well. A mandolin is an essential kitchen tool. Use it to cut the cucumber slices thin and evenly. You can buy tempeh bacon from a lot of stores, but I highly recommend making it yourself. The recipe I use is delicious, easy to make, and a lot cheaper than store bought bacon.

 I usually layer with the sprouts first as the vegenise will hold it in place a little better than being wedged between two other solid ingredients. Continue layering with the cucumber, bacon, and mixed greens. Cut with a sharp knife and enjoy! I think avocado and tomato would also be nice additions to this sandwich. Let me know any variations you try out.

Turmeric Carrot Juice

This is one of my favorite juicing recipes. I really think turmeric root and carrot pair well together. It might be hard tracking down the turmeric root as it doesn’t seem to be readily available in most grocery stores. If you haven’t tried juicing it before I’d highly recommend giving it a try. There is a very unique smell that the turmeric gives off when juiced but I can’t really put it into words. Also be warned that it tends to stain anything and everything it comes into contact with including your fingers. I often go to work with yellowish fingertips. It does eventually wash off, though.

This a really tart recipe as I like very tart flavors. If you aren’t like me then I would recommend only using half a lemon or adding more of the other ingredients to cut the taste of the lemons. I don’t usually have exact amounts; I eyeball and taste until I get the flavor that I like. I’ve been using an Omega 8006 juicer. Awhile back I upgraded from a centrifugal to a masticating juicer and have been really happy. What equipment is everyone else using?
