Recipe by Better Nature

1 h 50 min


360g (2 packs) Roast Tempeh Bites
2 teaspoons oil for cooking
8 slices of sourdough bread (or any bread of your choosing)
1/2 head of thinly sliced red cabbage
3 sprigs of finely chopped rosemary
1 tablespoon olive oil

1 knob of vegan butter
1 sliced red onion
125ml red wine vinegar
150ml agave syrup or maple syrup
1 finely chopped red chilli
200g fresh spinach
300ml plant-based milk
25g vegan butter
1/2 chopped white onion
3 cloves
1 crushed garlic clove
1 bay leaf
1 thyme sprig
1 teaspoon miso paste or soy sauce
50 grams white breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoons mustard
Pinches of salt and pepper
1 medium peeled and grated horseradish root
1 1/2 tablespoons mustard
2 teaspoons vinegar
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
A pinch of pepper


Red cabbage: Add the red cabbage, rosemary, olive oil, vegan butter, red onion, red wine vinegar, agave syrup and red chilli to a pan and cover with 300ml of water. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat, covering and gently cooking for 1½ hrs, stirring frequently. If too dry, add more water.

Bread sauce: Simmer the milk, vegan butter, chopped onion, cloves, garlic cloves, bay leaf, thyme and miso paste in a pan for 20 mins. Stir the breadcrumbs into the pan and simmer on a low heat for around 3 minutes. The sauce should start to thicken and form a relatively smooth consistency. Add in the mustard, then season with salt and pepper.

Horseradish sauce: Mix together the grated horseradish, mustard, vinegar, vegan mayonnaise, and pepper in a small bowl. Stir until fully combined.

Roast Bites: Heat 2 tsps oil in a pan over medium heat. Add in the bites and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Place the bread slices out flat and top up 4 of them with the spinach, red cabbage, bites, vegan bread sauce and horseradish sauce. Place the other 4 slices on top of them.
