The Challenge: BLT
This January my focus is Vegan Go To Meals That Don’t Suck! And oh boy do I have one for you today. OMG this shit is good.
We take the traditional BLT and made it epically better. But vegan BLT?! C’mon dude. Rice paper. Its epically great for this. We wet it, marinate it, and bake it for a crispy, crunchy, salty, mapley, smoky delicious flavor blast that is the perfect blend for BLTs. We then layer on a ton of other goodies to make this the sandwich you’ll want to make over and over again!
What else do we include:
Toasted Sourdough Bread
Chipootle Vegan Mayo
and of course…rice paper bacon
It only takes 30-40 minutes to make and is something you can make again and again with no confusing ingredients or recipes.
Put thisin your hands, squish down, let that mayo ooze out, and ENJOY!!! It will be a fan fav. I guarantee it.
Okay here’s a napkin … you have a little drool.
