tempeh BLT & a strawberry salad

May 10, 2012 by Angie

Cute Husband loves BLT sandwiches.  I made this vegan version with marinated, baked tempeh.  I followed this recipe for tempeh bacon from Vegetarian Times.  While the bacon was baking, I toasted two slices of whole wheat bread for each sandwich.  To construct a sandwich, put a little Vegenaise on one slice of bread then top with fresh spinach leaves (you can use lettuce if you’re a purist) and slices of tomato followed by a heaping helping of tempeh bacon and the second piece of bread.

These were easy and tasty.  The addition of the liquid smoke to the marinade goes a long way toward achieving the bacon flavor.

I made a strawberry salad to go with it.  The salad is mixed field greens, quartered strawberries, reduced fat feta cheese, and fat free raspberry dressing.  Yummy!
