Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook the vegetarian bacon for a minute on each side, just enough to warm it through and get it a bit browned. 2. Remove from the skillet and cut each slice in half. 3. Spread each slice of bread with a tablespoon of Vegenaise or mayonnaise and sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper. 4. Layer the bacon, tomato, avocado and lettuce on 4 slices of the bread and then sandwich with the remaining 4. 5. Cut each sandwich in half and serve. makes 41 tablespoon olive oil, 8 slices vegetarian bacon (you can find good brands made with tempeh), 8 slices organic sprouted whole grain bread (like Ezekiel), 1/2 cup Vegenaise (or your favorite mayonnaise), coarse salt, freshly ground black pepper, 2 very ripe tomatoes, sliced, 1 ripe avocado, sliced, 1 head baby gem lettuce or 1 heart of romaine lettuce, leaves separated.
