Vegenaise is your friend.

Veggie BLAT

goop

This sandwich impresses even the most dedicated carnivores. Full of flavor and super-satisfying, this is a lunchtime favorite in my house.

makes 4

1 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

1. 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.
