“Not Out to Lunch” Tempeh Sandwich

IMG_2203

Robert has been eating a variation of this sandwich everyday for the past few weeks and loves it. It is so much cheaper than buying lunch out–even from the cheapest fast food place. It┬ájust takes two minutes to make and pack up in the morning–less than it takes to go through a drive-thru. And what could you possibly want from a drive-thru anyway? Some diabetes? A little bit of heart disease? Come on now! That’s just silly. So pack a lunch. It’s less expensive, less time consuming, less polluting, and so much healthier for you. And, of course, delicious!

Ingredients:
1 package tempeh
Vegenaise
sprouts
chopped bell pepper
avocado
whole wheat bread

Instructions:
1. Make your tempeh on the weekend to use for the week. Cut it into 1/3 inch slices. Steam it for 10 minutes. Saute in a pan, about 5 minutes per side or till golden brown. Add 2 tablespoons soy sauce and cook for 1 minute more. Store in the fridge.
2. Take out two slices of bread, add your toppings, 4 slices of tempeh and you’ve got yourself a sandwich!
