Happy BLT month! Many people are observing the occasion throughout the month and vegans are no exception. Like many recipes, a BLT can be veganized!

The lettuce and tomato are a vegan given, but bacon can be plant-based, too.  From seitan, tofu, tempeh, eggplant, rice paper, mushroom, coconut, carrot, beetroot and more – the options are endless. Flavor ’em, season ’em, fry ’em how you would classic bacon. Get sizzling!
