Rated 5.0 stars by 1 users

Who doesn’t love a good BLT sandwich, whether it’s paired with soup after a cold winter’s day or paired with potato chips after a swim at the pool? For those who arevegetarian, however, a BLT isn’t much of a sandwich without the B. That’s why we decided to replace the B with T, also known as,tempeh! Tempeh is a great vegan and vegetarian substitute for bacon in this classic sandwich.
