Barbecue Tempeh Sandwich

Today I bring you the best sandwich in all the land – Barbecue Tempeh Sandwich! Ok, ok, maybe not in all the land, but it is extremely tasty and seems to be a firm favourite with anyone who tries it. When I said to my brother over the weekend that I was making it for the blog, he auto-invited himself for lunch… (And it’ll be waiting for you next week, Vladko 😉 )

Now, this is not some limp thin little sandwich that’ll leave you just as hungry after you’ve eaten it. No, this sandwich is thick and substantial, filled to the brim with goodness and will definitely work your jaw when you try to open your mouth large enough to fit it in 😀 This mix of crisp, juicy, spicy and creamy is really good. Add in the tempeh covered in caramelized barbecue sauce and even your meat-eating friends won’t be complaining.

Start with some good bread. I used a twisted ciabatta. Top with crispy lettuce leaves, barbecued tempeh and slather some more sauce on, if you’d like…

…and finally creamy buttery avocado, some lovely sprouts and the other half of your bread. Stick a toothpick in so all the goodness doesn’t fall out and enjoy!

Make it for lunch, for dinner… even for breakfast, if you feel like it 😀
