VEGAN BLT WITH TEMPEH BACUN

Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a BLT sandwich. Organic Tempeh is so easy to make vegan “bacun” from as it readily absorbs any flavours you choose to marinate it in. It’s a easy way to add in some protein and it’s a great source of iron too. I’ve served this to many friends and family members that are not vegan and they loved it!!   Cut tempeh into strips. Steam sliced tempeh pieces for 10 minutes to remove all bitter taste from the tempeh.
Whisk all marinade  ingredients well.
Place strips in glass or ceramic container with marinade for 6 -8 hours or overnight.
Use avocado oil to begin frying strips and slowly add marinade to frying pan to cook the tempeh strips. Fry both sides until deep golden brown. All the marinade will disappear and be absorbed by the strips. Remove from pan and place on paper towel to absorb any extra oil.
Build your BLT and enjoy! Don’t forget the vegan mayo…yummy .
