Tempeh BLT

This recipe is inspired by Frida’s in St. Louis, where I first tried tempeh bacon earlier this month. (Totally great!)

I never really had BLTs as an omnivore, so I just see this as an interesting way to enjoy tempeh, rather than a way to recreate a favorite meal.

There’s not much of a recipe here, since I was starting with pre-marinated tempeh bacon, rather than making my own from plain tempeh. I used Lightlife Smoky Tempeh Strips.

They’re pre-cut into thin slices, roughly similar to how bacon is sliced.

The “recipe”: Pan fry it in some oil until it seems done to you. I could fit the whole package (enough for two sandwiches) in a large pan at once.

Then assemble a sandwich: lightly toasted bread, sliced tomato, lettuce, and vegan mayo (I used Nayonaise).

Served with roasted brussels sprouts.
