The protein-packed filling has delicate smoke flavors, similar to cooked bacon. You will not miss the original with this recipe! It tastes like a real BLT Sandwich, I promise!

What is a BLT Sandwich?
- B = Bacon → In this case Tofu Bacon
- L = Lettuce
- T = Tomato
It’s one of the most popular sandwiches among Americans. No wonder, it’s packed with flavor. Crunchy lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and tofu bacon between two toasted slices of bread with a dash of vegan mayo.
You can enjoy this sandwich as a snack, for picnics, hiking tours, lunch at the office, or a quick dinner. Actually, it’s one of those bites you can enjoy throughout the whole day and is excellent for meal prepping.
Obviously, tofu is the primary ingredient and only needs a few steps for deliciousness: Cut it into fine slices, marinade in a smoky sauce, and bake! The baked tofu slices are dark brown, rich in protein, and have a delicious smoky flavor.
The vegan bacon seasoning adds a good deal of taste, just as it should be. It’s made with soy sauce, oil, maple syrup, liquid smoke, mustard, smoked paprika, and garlic powder.

Crispy bread? Freshly baked homemade bread doesn’t need to be toasted, but can if you wish so. On the other hand, if you are using store-bought bread or toast, I highly recommend toasting it first. Aline’s Tip: Toast it in a skillet with a few olive oil splashes until golden brown.
Love Onions? Place a few thinly sliced onions between the lettuce and tomatoes.
Can I prepare those BLT sandwiches in advance? Sure, they are excellent for meal prepping. Prepare them up to one day in advance and store packed in plastic/aluminum wrap or airtight container in the fridge. Eat cold or reheat in a toaster, skillet, or panini press.
