Not eating meat or dairy make my gut feel so much better, but sometimes there are things that I miss like cheese and bacon. I love a good BLT so I’ve got a vegan version.
I start with portobello mushroom caps. Slice them thinly and marinade them in maple syrup and liquid smoke for about 15 minutes.
I then cook the mushrooms about 3-4 minutes on each side on medium heat.
While the mushrooms are cooking go ahead and toast your bread. I spread vegan mayo on both pieces of toast. Then layer spinach on one side and tomatoes on the other. Okay, so it’s MST (Mushrooms, Spinach, and Tomato) but I like spinach more than lettuce.
Finally top with the cooked mushrooms. Now, the mushrooms are not anything like the texture of bacon. They are not crisp, but the flavor is super close!
The sandwich is delicious!
