Roasted Red Pepper Vegan Chicken and Tempeh Bacon Pita Sandwiches with Rosemary Garlic Mushrooms, Sun Dried Tomatoes, and Arugula

Roasted red pepper vegan chicken and tempeh bacon pita sandwiches are loaded with plant-based protein and make a great grab-and-go option for workday lunches. You can assemble the sandwiches and wrap them in foil or you can keep the components separate and assemble the sandwich at lunchtime. Since these sandwiches transport well they are also ideal for picnics or fuel for a long hike.

For these sandwiches, I made my own recipes for the vegan chicken and tempeh bacon to save money on the store-bought versions. Of course, if you are short on time you can pick up these at most grocery stores. However, if you have the time I recommend making your own. The tempeh bacon utilizes minimal ingredients that you probably already have around the house. It is also quick to make and you can throw it in the oven while you are prepping the other sandwich ingredients.

If you are going to use store-bought vegan chicken and bacon I have some recommendations below:
