Avocado Tempeh BLT (Vegan)

Avocado Tempeh BLT (Vegan)

I can only speak for myself, but a BLT sandwich will always be the superior which’ in my book.

A vegan version? Sign. me. up.

I’ve been tampering with making vegan “bacon” for a while, and this one hits the nail on the head. The recipe is super simple, super healthy, and boosting with flavor. A little bit sweet, a little salty, and just the way a BLT should taste.

Have you ever put mashed avocado on your BLT? Because it is life changing.

I put some mashed avocado, sliced tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, tempeh bacon, and Dijon mustard on freshly baked sourdough and it was a holy masterpiece.
