My husband sent me an email while I was at work yesterday. I think we should make vegan BLT's.
Okay, I replied. Where did that come from? I didn't question him though. If he was actually requesting something vegan, I was happy to oblige.
Now as we know, the B in BLT stands for bacon, so I needed to find a vegan substitute for that. Most fake bacon's actually have egg and milk in them, so you have to do a little bit more searching for an actual vegan bacon. The only kind I have found are the Lightlife brand. They don't look as cool as the Morning Star brand, but they taste pretty good, and of course they are egg and dairy free.
W advised that, "crispiness is the key," so I fried them for about six minutes on a skillet.
Next up, you have the L (lettuce) and T (tomato). We used romaine and hot house.
Spread some bread with Vegenaise, and pile up the BLT. I used whole wheat bagel thins, and W used just regular whole grain bread. The result was a delicious, filling, healthy sandwich! The husband nodded his approval with stuffed cheeks, and I suggested we need to eat sandwiches more often. This was such an easy, yummy lunch, can we have more please?
