KM and I were lucky to find tempeh in a teeny organic store in Milan. We were overjoyed! The marinated strips made their way into these pocket sandwiches stuffed with spicy arugula and vine-ripe tomatoes. It was the perfect sack lunch to accompany our day of adventuring, making new friends, hiking pilgrimage routes up steep cliffs, and swimming in clear, cold, deep mountain lakes.
This stuffed pocket is a tight contender with my favorite cucumber and sun dried tomato sandwich for best trekking sammy! The added tempeh packs a protein punch necessary for long journeys and Italian arugula is extra spicy and tender.
