Tempeh Dagwood Sandwich
Stacked up high and filled with smooth avocado, juicy tomato, and creamy cheese, this power-protein sandwich is a South Beach vegetarian favorite. Vegans can use nondairy mayo and soy cheese. If you have extra time, marinate the tempeh for up to an hour.

Recipe Ingredients:
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon plus 11/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 (8-ounce) package soy tempeh
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
2 slices multigrain bread, lightly toasted
1 ounce shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (3 tablespoons)
1/4 avocado, peeled and sliced
2 slices tomato

Cooking Directions:
Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic in a shallow bowl. Add tempeh and marinate for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through.
Spray a medium nonstick skillet with fat-free cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add tempeh, reserving marinade, and cook until well browned, 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat, add 2 tablespoons of the marinade to the pan, and flip tempeh once or twice until marinade is absorbed.
Spread mayonnaise on 1 bread slice. Place tempeh on top and cover with cheese, avocado, and tomato. Top with remaining bread, gently press down, slice in half, and serve.
Makes 1 serving.
