Bacon Avocado Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

This is another one of my favorite summer sandwiches, and it is really just a tomato sandwich on steroids. Makes 1 sandwich.

2 slices toasted whole-wheat bread
2 slices tempeh bacon
sliced tomato
sliced avocado
vegan mayonnaise to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Spray a non-stick frying pan with a little oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the tempeh bacon slices and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

Spread each slice of toast with mayonnaise. Add tempeh bacon, tomatoes, avocado, lettuce and pepper.

  • Replace the mayonnaise with Mango Guacamole or use guacamole, instead of avocado.
  • Use spicy mustard, hummus or other spreads instead of mayonnaise.
  • Add a few slices of pickles.
