If I had to name one sandwich I miss the most it would have to be a BLT. Bacon … lettuce and tomato. This used to be one of my favourite lunchtime staples and ever since I made the transition to a more plant-based diet I’ve struggled to create the perfect vegan BLT. Well … guess what, ladies and gents?! I FRICKIN MADE IT!!! I actually whipped this up during one of our massive photoshoots at the house because I was starving and it turned out so good that we ended up snapping a bunch of photos of it and the girls each taste tested it and it got two thumbs up all around!!
So, today I wanted to share it with you so you could recreate it and give it a try for yourself!! I find that in order to make a kick ass BLT you just HAVE to use white bread … I’m not against using brown or rye bread, I just think that white bread tastes best because it seems more indulgent!
- White Bread
- Vegan Mayo
- Vegan Bacon
- Sliced tomato
- Salt and pepper
- Pickles (optional side)
- Olives (optional side)
- Chips (optional side)
- Toast your bread.
- Add a generous amount of vegan mayo to toasted bread.
- Add sliced tomatoes and lettuce to your sandwich.
- Top with cooked vegan bacon. I fry mine in a pan until crispy!
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve with a side of pickles, olives, and chips!
This recipe can’t be any simpler … it’s exactly like a typical BLT but you just replace the mayo with vegan mayo, I used Hellman’s Vegan Dressing on this one and subbed the bacon for vegan bacon!! I used vegan bacon from The Very Good Butchers and it was soooooo good!!! I also like to serve up my BLT with a pickle and/or olives on the side and of course, some chips!!! Hey, I never said this was a healthy meal … I just said it was vegan!! LOL!!!!
Ps. Stay tuned for my upcoming bacon alternatives post … you won’t want to miss this one!! I’m drooling already …
