Recipe for South Beach Diet Tempeh Dagwood Sandwich. Stacked up high this power-protein sandwich is a South Beach vegetarian favorite.


  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 (8-ounce) package soy tempeh
  • 1 teaspoon mayonnaise
  • 2 slices multigrain bread, lightly toasted
  • 1 ounce shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (3 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 2 slices tomato


  1. Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic in a shallow bowl. Add tempeh and marinate for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through. Spray a medium nonstick skillet with fat-free cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add tempeh, reserving marinade, and cook until well browned, 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat, add 2 tablespoons of the marinade to the pan, and flip tempeh once or twice until marinade is absorbed. Spread mayonnaise on 1 bread slice. Place tempeh on top and cover with cheese, avocado, and tomato. Top with remaining bread, gently press down, slice in half, and serve.
