Vegan BALT Sandwich (Bacon, Avocado, Lettuce, Tomato)

Yield: 1 serving | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes


This is one of my new favorite ways to cook tempeh! I seriously thought cooking it in BBQ sauce was so weird at first, but it turned out absolutely amaaaazing. Trust Nimai and make this sandwich asap!


  • A few slices of tempeh

  • 2 tbsp vegan BBQ sauce

  • 2 slices of toast

  • 1-2 tbsp vegan mayo

  • 1 slice vegan cheese (I used Follow Your Heart pepper jack)

  • Lettuce or spinach

  • 1 slice tomato

  • 1/4 avocado


  • Heat a frying pan on medium and add the thinly sliced tempeh.

  • Cook for 2-3 minutes to brown.

  • Add the vegan BBQ sauce an cook for another 2-3 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, toast your bread and prep your veggies.

  • When the tempeh is done, assemble your sandwich: ○ Spread the mayo on the toast, then add the cheese, tempeh “bacon”, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and greens.

  • Enjoy!


Tips and Tricks:

  • Your tempeh may break apart in the pan if you slice them too thin. This is totally okay, just be careful when flipping/cooking them.
