My favorite kinds of foods are the simplest: soup, salad, sandwich. This wrap fits the criteria of easy, hearty, and delicious. Also, my camera is on the fritz, I will keep apologizing for my camera phone until I get a nwe one!
Tempeh Bacon and Avocado Wrap
Tempeh Bacon (recipe follows)
Small handful microgreens or sprouts
3 slices tomato
1 large whole-wheat wrap (I used a Sprouted Wheat wrap)
1 tbsp. egg-free mayonaise
1/2 avocado, sliced
2 large leaf lettuce or spinach
Slice 1 package of tempeh into thin slices to resemble bacon strips. Add these to a steamer basket and steam for 10 minutes. You can also steam the block whole and then slice, I just prefer it in reverse!
Marinate the sliced tempeh in 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup tamari soy sauce, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and 1 tsp. liquid smoke (optional). The longer you let marinate, the richer the flavor will be. I usually do 3 hours, but you can do as little as 30 minutes.
Fry the bacon strips in oil until crispy on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Also a delicious in scrambles, Rubens, or better than tuna salads!
Assemble the Wraps:
Spread mayo on wrap or multi-grain bread. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and layer with lettuce, avocado, tomato, bacon, and micro greens. Wrap together or top with bread slice.
Enjoy! What are some of your favorite sandwiches?
