TLT Sandwich with Maple Tempeh Bacon and Avocado Spread

 This is one of my favorite lunches and I will also admit to eating this one for breakfast. This recipe is really for the tempeh bacon and can be used for so many different dishes. I made this into a wrap also and just added avocado without making the actual spread. I liked the spread for the sandwich because avocados always slide off the sandwich! In a wrap, they can't go anywhere. Let's get started!

Cook time 30-40 minutes. Marinate tempeh overnight if you can.

Preheat oven 375

Makes enough for 5 plus sandwiches or wraps.

 

What You Will Need 

For the tempeh bacon:

1/4 cup of liquid aminos, you can also use soy sauce or tamari.

1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup of water

3 Tbsp of pure maple syrup

2 1/2 tsp of liquid smoke

1/2 tsp of garlic powder

1/2 tsp of onion powder

1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp of cumin

2 - 8 oz packages of organic tempeh

For the avocado spread:

1 avocado

1 garlic clove

1/2 tsp salt or salt to taste

1/2 lemon juiced

You have to buy young jackfruit that is not ripe yet. I chose to buy it canned in brine, also an important step because sometimes it can be canned in syrup. I have to admit, buying a fresh jackfruit seemed a little intimidating to me. I had no clue how to prepare jackfruit at all, even the canned version. 

of course, I went to the all-knowing google to learn how to prepare the canned version and I suggest you do the same if you are also a jackfruit virgin. There was plenty of YouTube videos on the subject. I took a few pictures and will post here but I believe a video serves better on this subject and plan to do this for one of my meatless Monday's meals soon!

The jackfruit has a core like a pineapple and you will cut that part off. Within the...
