VEGAN BLT BACON
This recipe I learned from Devyn Howard on my cooking show. Tempeh is the bacon substitute and with this recipe you can give it a smokey bacon flavor with a nice crisp. I wouldn’t say it tastes just like bacon, but I will say it tastes delicious!

12 oz tempeh
2 c water
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp maple syrup

Heat up a pan with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Cook the tempeh on both sides for about 3-5 min each side.

Stack you BLT with bread, mayo, tempeh bacon, tomato slices, lettuce and sliced avocado.
