Vegan MoFo: An Apple a Day

...won't keep the midwife away.

Today's MoFo post is brought to you by: APPLES.

I made a scrumptious lunch of apple-tempeh sammys. I'd like to share the recipe with you!

Apple Tempeh Sandwiches

Tempeh - 1 block cut in half lengthwise, cross-sectioned to make thin squares
2 apples, sliced thin (gala, red delicious, pink lady)
1/2 cup apple juice
2 T apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp cumin
To serve: 4 pieces bread, lettuce, dijon mustard, Veganaise

  • Preheat to 350 F.
  • Arrange the tempeh and apple slices in a 8-9 inch square or round baking pan.
  • Whisk together the remaining ingredients, pour over the top, and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Serve on toast with lettuce and dijon/mayo.
  • (modified from a Whole Foods recipe)

Also, here's why an apple a day won't keep the midwife away: we're turning apples into something very special!


  1. oooh cider?!!? Or boozy cider?!

  2. Boozy woozy cider. It's like chemistry class, but more fun!

  3. Ooh yummy! I've never thought of pairing tempeh with sweet but it makes so much sense!
