Avocado Toast with Crunchy Tempeh and Slaw

I love avocado, and avocado toast is one of favorites.

I use my homemade crusty whole wheat bread and toast it lightly.

Creamy avocado on crusty toast is so good as it is, but I decided to go a bit further this time.

I got crunchy teriyaki tempeh strips and fruity slaw prepared for this one.

The slaw got usual suspects, such as cabbage and radish, but I also added fruit like mango and apple and herbs like cilantro and mint to this one, which makes the slaw a bit special and super refreshing.

Whenever I make these tempeh strips, I make extra as they freeze and thaw well.

These are so tasty and can be a great snack when you want something salty but not fried food.

    I like tempeh but Marty’s never tried it. I’d like to make this, do you have a favorite tempeh brand? I could try to look for it here. I’ve never even tried avocado toast! We have 5 ripe avocados right now, so i better get on it!

    Hi Lori,

    I’ve actually only tried one brand for tempeh, Lightlife. That’s what most stores carry in this area. Terry likes tempeh, especially when it’s strongly flavored; I usually marinate it first before fry/bake it.
