Vegan Toasted BLT

Two Vegan Toasted BLT sandwiches with chips on newspaper comics.

Who doesn’t love an easy to slap together BLT? This Vegan Toasted BLT is my go to when I want a delicious lunch with minimal effort. Not only is it tasty it’s got some good for you ingredients like tomato, avocado, lettuce & tempeh.

If you have never tried tempeh, don’t be scared off – it’s absolutely amazing! It’s earthy and has a meaty texture. Made up of soybeans that have been fermented with grains! It’s also nutritious, providing your body with protein, fiber and iron! It’s very easy to cook – fry it up in a pan or even pop it in the air fryer to crisp it up a bit! My favorite go to tempeh is Tofurky’s Smoky Maple Bacon. It’s the best in sandwiches! You can also marinate your own tempeh to flavor it to your liking!

If you give this sandwich a try let me know what you think! Did you add any other veggies, or remove any? If it was your first time trying tempeh, welcome to the tempeh loving club!!

Ingredients

  • 2 leaves romaine lettuce
  • 1 roma tomato thinly sliced
  • 1 small avocado thinly sliced
  • 6 strips smoky maple tempeh bacon (my favorite is Tofurky Smoky Maple Bacon)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 slices rye bread (or your favorite sandwich bread)
  • 4 tablespoons vegan mayo
  • 1/2 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 slices your favorite vegan cheese (I used Parmela Sharp Cheddar)

Instructions

  • Prep the veggies – Clean & your lettuce, thinly slice your tomatoes & avocado
  • Cook the tempeh bacon – Place in an air fryer at 350° for 5 – 6 minutes until browned and crispy OR heat a large pan over medium high heat and cook in oil for 2 minutes per side until nicely browned.
  • Toast the bread – You can either toast your bread in the toaster to save on dishes & time OR heat up a large pan over medium heat and once hot add oil and toast your bread for 4 – 6 minutes in the pan, flipping halfway so both sides get nice and toasty!
  • Make sriracha mayo – Combine mayo and sriracha and mix well.
  • Put the sandwich together – Spread the sriracha mayo on your toast and follow up with your avocado, tempeh bacon, tomato slices, lettuce & vegan cheese. Press down on the sandwich (not with Hulk force or you'll be eating a smashed sandwich!!) to cut it in half without losing half the ingredients.

Notes

  • You can add or subtract veggies based on your preference!
