Grilled Tempeh Sandwich with Wasabi Aoli


SERVES: 2 PREP TIME: 20 MIN Gluten Free


Wasabi Aoli Sauce:
• ¼ cup reduced fat vegenaise w/ flax oil by Follow You Heart
• ½ teaspoon wasabi paste, or powder mixed with 2 teaspoons water
• ½ teaspoon lemon juice
Salt to taste

• ½ tablespoon coconut oil
• 1 (8 ounce) pack of tempeh, cut in half
• 1 cup sliced cabbage, exposed to air for 5-10 min
• 2 slices tomato
• 2 slices onion
Salt and pepper to taste
• 2 of your favorite gluten free bread/ buns

Tip: To add even more flavor to the tempeh, slice each half into 2 thinner sheets of tempeh and season both sides before cooking.


1. Mix all sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.

2. Bring oil to medium-high heat in a medium pan. Pepper the tempeh generously on both sides and pan-fry for 3-5 minutes on each side. Salt to taste.

3. In a small bowl, toss cabbage with ½ of the sauce and set aside.

4. Toast your favorite gluten free bun and smear it with some of the sauce on each side. Then layer the tempeh, tomatoes, onions, and cabbage.

5. Serve with your favorite side dish or as a meal of its own!

Tip: The vegenaise really helps to soften the wasabi’s bite. But if the wasabi aioli is too spicy for you, try replacing the wasabi with of a ½ tbsp of crushed garlic. Be sure to expose it to air for 5-10 min to maximize its detox properties. You can also give the garlic a quick sauté to reduce the spiciness!
