2Tbslime olive oilor regular olive oil + juice from ½ lime
2Panini Slims1/2 per sandwich or sandwich roll of choice
Extra Sriracha to taste
Slice each block of tempeh into 10 slices, so you end up with 20 total.
In a mixing bowl, toss tempeh with lime-infused olive oil.
Begin to heat grill on high. (If you don’t have a grill, you can also pan-fry the tempeh on the stove)
While the grill is heating up, combine sliced cucumber and carrots in a seal-able container. Add in rice vinegar, garlic, and a pinch of salt. Shake well to combine and set aside until ready to eat (this can be done up to a week ahead of time).
Once grill is heated, place tempeh slices over grates and allow to cook 5 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear.
While tempeh is cooking, prepare your sandwiches. Combine mayo and sriracha in a small bowl. Spread a decent amount of sauce onto each sandwich. Add carrots and cucumber.
Once tempeh is grilled, add 5 slices to each sandwich. Drizzle with extra sriracha if desired and enjoy!
