Tempeh, Sriracha, on a Bun, OH MY…

Tomatoes by Clint Bush

I just discovered my new favorite sandwich. Inspired by Jeffrey Saad’s (of The Next Food Network Star) recipe for Harissa Steak Sandwich, I decided to make a vegetarian version. The only differences were I substituted tempeh for steak, Sriracha for Harissa, and sandwich thins for rolls. The rest of the sandwich consisted of a spicy mint, garlic, and sun-dried tomato infused mayo, salad greens w/arugula, and sliced tomato. The mayo was amazing especially in conjunction with the spicy nutty flavor of the tempeh which I rubbed with a little Sriracha and toasted to bring out the nuttiness even more.

The outcome was outstanding. The best part is that it cost me less than $3 for the ingredients (broken down by serving) and took me about 20min to put together.
