Warm "bacon" contrasts nicely with crisp lettuce and ripe tomato, and makes a delicious, nutritious vegan sandwich. Vegan bacon, lettuce, tomato
Yield 1 sandwich
Time 5 minutes
  • medium frying pan
  • tongs
  • knife
  • 2 slices bread (preferably whole grain)
  • 1-2 t oil
  • 3-4 slices vegan bacon*
  • vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 leaves of lettuce (or more, depending on size)
  • 2-3 slices tomato
Directions Optional: toast bread.

Heat oil over medium heat, add bacon, and fry until golden and crisp. Turn and fry other side.

Meanwhile, spread mayonnaise on one slice of bread/toast.

Arrange lettuc, tomato, and bacon, cutting to fit, if necessary.

Top with other slice of bread, cut in half, and serve immediately.


"Fakin’ Bacon" from Lightlife is made from organic tempeh marinated in a slight smoky sauce, it’s delicious. When that’s not available, I use thinly sliced smoked tofu (shown).

This simple sandwich is packed with good nutrition: whole grain, vegetables, and excellent vegetarian protein.

I often add a bit of red onion and avocado for a more substantial sandwich.
