Vegan BLT Sandwiches

Is it lunch time yet? I think it might have to be.

I’ve been making this vegan-ized version of a BLT for a few years now, and it never disappoints. It’s savory, smokey, and perfect for a summer day.

It all starts with the marinated tofu ‘bacon’, which is flavorful and crispy. Add the mayo, tomato, greens, avocado, onion, and bread, and it’s sandwich heaven. Enjoy!
