As promised, my take on a vegan “BLT” sandwich! Trust me, it was worth the wait.
The base for this beauty is bread, such as my Easy Vegan Seeded Whole Grain Bread! Next comes a spread, either vegan mayo or hummus! Then comes the “B” (bacon), “L” (lettuce), and “T” (tomato) and onion.
It’s as easy as that! I hope you all LOVE this vegan-ized BLT! It’s:
This would make the perfect lunch or easy weeknight meal. It is delicious on its own, but it would also pair perfectly with my 5-Minute Detox Salad with No-Mix Dressing, Beet Chips, Vegan Potato Salad, Crispy Baked Garlic Fries, or Cajun Spiced Sweet Potato Fries!

Vegan "BLT" Sandwich
Toast bread (optional). In the meantime, heat skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add eggplant bacon (if using coconut bacon, no need to heat) and cook for 1-2 minutes. Then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side until warmed through. Remove from heat and set aside.
To assemble sandwich, spread vegan mayo (or hummus) on the toasted bread slices. Then top one piece with Eggplant or Coconut Bacon, onion, tomato, and lettuce. Top with other piece of bread, slice (optional), and enjoy.
Could be made ahead of time (up to a few hours), but best when fresh.

*Spread pictured was hummus, but sandwich is even more delicious with vegan mayo!
