Power up your day with this mid-day lunch of plant-based goodness!

Step 1:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 C). Slice an eggplant in half lengthwise. Then cut the remaining eggplant in half lengthwise once more so you have two long, skinny pieces. Use a mandolin to slice into very thin strips (resembling the size/shape of bacon).

Step 2:

Make the marinade by adding the oil, tamari, maple syrup, garlic powder, smoked paprika, sea salt, and black pepper to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Dip each piece of eggplant into the marinade to cover both sides.

Step 3:

Arrange in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with more black pepper. Bake for 30 minutes, flip, and bake for 10 minutes until it's slightly crispy and dry.

Step 4:

Make the chipotle hummus by mixing the hummus and chipotle pepper in adobe sauce in a small food processor with an immersion blender.

Step 5:

Assemble the sandwich by generously adding chipotle hummus to both sides of the bread (we used sourdough), then add eggplant bacon, cucumber, tomato, avocado, and sprouts.
