Tempeh Avocado Sprout Sandwich

I came across this recipe at the most perfect time.  I had some tempeh and some sprouts that needed to get used before they expired and anything with avocado just sounds absolutely amazing!  I rarely eat sandwiches anymore, but I may have to make them more just to eat this sandwich.  This was so simple to make, so tasty, and a great healthy meal!

Tempeh Avocado Sprout Sandwich

This recipe was adapted from here:


  • 1 8oz package of tempeh
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tbs tamari
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4 slices of sprouted grain bread*
  • 4 tbs hummus
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 pint alfalfa sprouts
  • handful of greens


  1. Slice the tempeh in half.
  2. Mix together the olive oil, maple syrup, tamari, and balsamic vinegar in a shallow bowl.
  3. Evenly coat the tempeh and let it marinate for about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake the tempeh at 400F for 30 minutes flipping once halfway through baking.
  5. Once the tempeh is done, spread hummus on your bread.
  6. Add tempeh, avocado, sprouts, and some greens.

This recipe makes two sandwiches or two wraps!

*Ezekiel sprouted grain bread was used by my family.  To make this gluten free, use a gluten free bread or try a wrap!  I recommend these  Brown Rice Tortillas which is made by the same company as the ezekiel bread.
