Tempeh BLT on toasted sourdough

So, it turns out that trying to get a good photo of a sandwich, whilst on your own with rubbish lighting, is near impossible. 

I've never used tempeh before this morning. I'd always looked at it, in health food shops but I always thought it looked a bit daunting. "Give me tofu any day" I used to think because I knew where I was with good old tofu, but actually, I think I prefer this! The tempeh I used to assemble this ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS sandwich (don't worry, i'm not claiming this to be a recipe) was smoked and salty - hence the bacon reference, but i'm excited to try some plain tempeh soon and mix it up a bit.  I'd say if you haven't tried it, then go for it. Don't be scared like I was! If you use it already, i'd love to hear what you do with it.



  • 2 - 3 slices of tempeh
  • 2 slices of beef tomato
  • a handful of baby spinach leaves
  • vegan mayo (I use Chippa, my favourite)
  • ketchup 
  • 2 slices of a good sourdough


  1. Toast your sourdough at the same time that you're frying your tempeh, as they'll take similar times, the simply build your sandwich!
  2. That was easy, wasn't it.
  3. I know you don't need to be told how to make a sandwich, but what else was I meant to put here.
