|Warm "bacon" contrasts nicely with crisp lettuce and ripe tomato, and makes a delicious, nutritious vegan sandwich.|
|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.
* Whenever possible, I make my own tofu bacon. My favorite storebought is "Fakin’ Bacon" from Lightlife, which is made from organic tempeh marinated in a slight smoky sauce. In a pinch, 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.
