Vegan BLT… like a party in your face!

This is so simple I feel like I’m cheating by posting it.  We wanted BLT this Monday. We’ve got a reliable source of vegan gluten-free bread so the next step is to make it awesome.

All you need is some smoky maple bacon tempeh. We bought outs pre-flavored but a tablespoon of maple syrup and drop of liquid smoke or pinch of smoked paprika works perfectly. We sprayed a pan lightly with some olive oil and sauteed it until it was browned lightly.

We mixed up some chipotle lime mayo by combining the juice from 1/2 a lime, a heaping tablespoon of nutritional yeast, a pinch of vegan sugar, 1 carton of silken tofu and 1 8 ounce tin of chipotle peppers (this will make it REALLY spicy) use 2-3 peppers for an amusing kick of spice) in the food processor and blending until smooth.

I spread that on a piece of bread, added some tomato and spinach, so technically it’s not really a BLT, it’s a TST but who’s counting anyways.

These babies disappeared really fast.

This is Christie and Brent, signing off.

  1. YUM! I love vegan BLTs (or TLTs, whatevs!) We’re actually making a simpler version of this tonight because the last thing I want to do in this heat is turn on the oven!!

    I’m giving tempeh another try just for TLT’s!

  6. Tempeh Fakin’ Bacon is my FAVE-Y. I love browning it gently in the pan and eating it on the side of my tofu scramble. Your dressing sounds so tasty. I am trying it, for sure.

      YEAH! Sometimes we have tempeh and tofu scramble on Teese or Follow your Heart mozzarella melted over bread. … hungry now.

    I wish I had access to those strips. I’d make BLT all the time!

    • Kinenchen says:

      I hear ya. I hate that many vegan goodies aren’t readily available. I had to write my local store manager to get kombucha.

  8. I wish I could write such a good blog.

  9. I think that what you said was actually very logical. However, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that makes people want more? I mean Vegan BLT… like a party in your face! Turning Veganese is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post titles to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    I don’t comment, however after browsing through a great deal of comments on Vegan BLT… like a party in your face! Turning Veganese. I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or do a few of these responses come across like they are coming from brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
