For the record, tempeh ‘bacon’ does not taste just like real bacon. In my opinion, it’s better! No grease, no piggies dying and no clogged arteries. If you are used to eating bacon, I recommend having an open mind and giving this recipe a try.


  • 8 oz tempeh

  • 4 whole wheat tortillas

  • 1-2 tomatoes

  • 1 bunch of green leafy lettuce

  • ¼ red onion

  • 2 avocados

  • 1 tablespoon of liquid smoke

  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon of water

  • ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika

  • ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon of onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon of sea salt

  • Pepper to taste


In a large bowl, mix together liquid smoke, soy sauce, pure maple syrup, water, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt and pepper. Slice tempeh ¼” thick. Place tempeh into marinade, making sure each piece is covered and let sit for at least 5 minutes (overnight is preferred). Thinly slice tomatoes and red onion. Place marinated tempeh onto parchment paper in the air fryer. Using a cooking brush, brush the tops of each piece of tempeh with remaining marinade (you can save some to recoat half-way through cooking). Air fry at 400 degrees for a total of 10 minutes, flipping and brushing with marinade half way through cook time.  If using an oven, bake at 425 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  Microwave tortillas for 30-60 seconds wrapped in a paper towel to retain moisture. Layer half a mashed avocado on each tortilla, followed by lettuce, tomato, onion, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, then finally the tempeh bacon. Roll and enjoy!
