What’s In This Sandwich?

Think of this sandwich kind of like a vegan BLT, but elevated with spicy chipotle hummus and extra veggies.

  • Chipotle Hummus – spicy, smoky, and perfect for spreading on your favorite bread
  • Tempeh Bacona smoky, super satisfying plant-based alternative to bacon that’s made from protein-packed, fiber-rich soybeans!
  • Cucumber – crisp, crunchy, hydrating, and a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and more
  • Alfalfa Sprouts – fresh, crisp, and the perfect sandwich companion (and somehow better than lettuce — you’ll see when you try it)
  • Tomato – sweet, juicy, and full of vitamin C and antioxidants
  • Avocado – rich, creamy, and a great source of healthy fats to keep you feeling full

Prep your ingredients, and let’s assemble this thing!

Four slices of bread — two topped with avocado and tomato and the other two with hummus, cucumber, tempeh bacon, and alfalfa sprouts

We hope you LOVE this hummus and tempeh sandwich! It’s:

Quick & easy
& SO delicious!

It’s a filling meal on its own but would also be delicious served with a salad, chips, or sliced veggies. You can make the tempeh bacon and chipotle hummus in advance (or use store-bought) for effortless, flavorful lunches (or dinners) all week long.

Does it keep? 3-4 Days (tempeh bacon and hummus)


  • 3-4 Tbsp chipotle hummus (or sub store-bought)
  • 3 slices tempeh bacon (or sub store-bought such as Lightlife)
  • 2 slices sandwich bread of choice (find our gluten-free bread recipe here)
  • 6 slices fresh cucumber
  • 1-2 slices fresh tomato
  • 3 slices ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup alfalfa sprouts (or sub greens of choice)


  • If using homemade chipotle hummus and tempeh bacon, prepare them first. They can be made up to 3-4 days in advance. Otherwise, use store-bought tempeh bacon and cook according to package instructions.
  • Toast bread (if desired) and slice the sandwich toppings (cucumber, tomato, avocado).
  • Assemble sandwich by spreading chipotle hummus on one slice of bread, then layer (in this order) cucumber, tempeh bacon, sprouts, tomato, avocado, and remaining slice of bread. Enjoy!
  • Best when fresh, but the hummus and tempeh bacon will keep stored separately for 3-4 days if you want to prep them ahead and assemble sandwiches when ready for quick weekday lunches!



*Prep time and cook time assume using store-bought hummus and tempeh bacon and heating the tempeh bacon on the stovetop.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated with Dave’s Killer Bread 21 Whole Grain Bread and with homemade hummus and tempeh bacon.

    Pretty much kept the recipe as-is, except I used sprouted grain tortillas (instead of bread) to make wraps for the week. Absolutely floored with how simple and delicious it is! And I feel so great eating it! Thanks for the recipe!
