This Vegan BLT Sandwich recipe features tasty tempeh bacon, crispy lettuce, juicy tomato and creamy vegan mayo. An easy gluten-free and vegan lunch or dinner!
I am literally in LOVE with this BLT!
Well, I guess you can call it a TLT or a TBLT if you'd like since it's made with tempeh bacon.
But whatever you call it, it is one awesome sandwich for sure!
After I made my air fryer tempeh bacon, I decided to re-purpose the leftovers into a sandwich and that's how this vegan BLT was born!
Ingredients you'll need
- 2 slices of your favorite gluten-free, vegan bread
- 1-2 tablespoons of vegan mayonnaise - I used our homemade oil-free vegan mayo, but you can use your favorite.
- 2 slices of tomato - I recommend "on the vine" or beefsteak.
- 1-2 lettuce leaves - I recommend Bibb or romaine.
- 4 slices of tempeh bacon - If you are using our recipe, you will find directions for air fryer, stovetop and oven methods. Note that our homemade version is gluten-free, but typically store-bought brands are not.
How to make it
First, toast the bread to your liking using a toaster or toaster oven.
Next, spread mayo on one side of one of the pieces of toast. If you want, you can repeat this with the other piece of toast.
I only used mayo on one piece.
Then, place the lettuce on top of the mayo followed by the tomato slices and tempeh bacon.
Top it all off with the other piece of toast and take a BIG bite!
What to serve with this vegan sandwich
You can also make it soup and sandwich night and serve alongside your favorite soup, such as this creamy vegan tomato soup from Brand New Vegan.
- If you want to make more sandwiches, simply double, triple or even quadruple the recipe to suit your needs. Our tempeh bacon recipe makes approximately 20 slices, so if you are making it just for BLTs, you will be able to make up to 5 sandwiches.
- Want to jazz up this vegan sandwich even more? Add some sliced avocado or mash some up and mix it into the mayo spread.
