This vegan breakfast sandwich with tempeh, avocado, and tomato isn’t kidding around. It’s piled high with tempeh chorizo, avocado, beet hummus, tomato, mustard, and pickled jalapenos. You can use a bagel, bread, or an English muffin as your base.
Six days out of seven, I reach for standard breakfast fare: overnight oats, sourdough toast with nut butter and banana, smoothie bowls, maybe pancakes or French toast if I’m in the mood for something hearty. Occasionally, I realize that my taste buds are actually craving bold, savory flavours in the morning, and that’s when I make a breakfast sandwich or burrito.
My breakfast sandwiches aren’t always as stacked as the one here. Often times, they can be as simple as a scrambled or fried egg topped with some sliced avocado and tomato. But when I have the time and the motivation, I allow my imagination to run wild.
This Vegan Breakfast Sandwich with Tempeh, Avocado, and Tomato is actually the result of a happy accident: I had tempeh chorizo, beet hummus, and pickled jalapenos in the fridge at the same time. I also had a perfectly ripe avocado, a beautiful heirloom tomato, and a sprouted grain everything bagel.
You all know where this is going, don’t you?
If the colours of this sandwich alone don’t brighten your morning, the first bite will! There are so many flavours and textures in here that just play well together. Creamy avocado, meaty tempeh, salty-sweet hummus, spicy jalapenos, juicy tomatoes…
I’ll wait as we all wipe the drool from our chins.
There we go.
If you already have the ingredients for this sandwich prepped, as I did, this sandwich comes together remarkably fast in the morning. If not, the prep will be a bit more involved, but still manageable.
I hope you LOVE this sandwich. It’s:
-Totally worth waking up early for
I think it would taste amazing with an iced chai (or a warm chai, seeing as we’re nearing the fall- yay!) latte.
