I've always been a fan of the BLT. As a child my Mom would often make them for me during the summer, so to me they're the ultimate summer comfort food. When I went Vegetarian, I discovered tempeh bacon and haven't looked back. Is there a more perfect use for tempeh? I don't think so. When correctly cooked and seasoned I think tempeh is way better than bacon could ever be. So here is my version of the TLT!
These Marinated Tempeh Bacon Strips are from Turtle Island Foods, the home of Tofurky. Without a doubt, these are the best bacon flavored tempeh strips I've ever had. The flavor is sweet and smoky and very delicious.
Fairly new from Follow Your Heart is the Reduced Fat Vegenaise. It's become a staple in my household. The first time I ate it, I really noticed the difference between the normal and the reduced fat, but six months in it tastes normal to me!
As you can see I'm out on the picnic table ready to devour my TLT. Have a great summer!
