Ingredients

  • olive oil spray
  • 6 large pieces tempeh bacon* approx. 4 oz
  • butter lettuce
  • 9 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 small avocados sliced
  • Vegan Cilantro Ranch
  • 6 pieces rice paper

Instructions

  • Heat a pan over medium heat. Spray with olive oil and add the tempeh bacon to the pan. Cook until browned on both sides (approx. 3-5 minutes per side). Remove from the pan and set aside until cool.
  • While the tempeh is cooling, prepare the Vegan Cilantro Ranch and the rest of the veggies. If your tempeh bacon is in long strips, cut them in half.
  • Fill a large bowl with room temperature water. Soak 1 rice paper roll in the water for 6-10 seconds. You want the rice paper to be soft but pliable – it will continue to soften as you fill it.
  • Place the rice paper on a flat surface and layer lettuce, tempeh bacon, avocado & tomatoes in the center. Roll it up like a burrito and place on a cutting board.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the ingredients. Use a sharp knife and cut each roll into 2 pieces.
  • Serve with Vegan Cilantro Ranch.

Notes

*I used Lightlife tempeh bacon, which comes in long strips. If you make your own tempeh bacon, or use another brand, you want to make sure you have enough to place 2 three inch tempeh strips in each roll. 
**These will last 2-3 days in the fridge, but are better served immediately.
