The Best Vegan BLT (with Eggplant Bacon)

I took a peek at this recipe because I adore eggplant. And it is a sandwich recipe . You can never have too many of those.

This is yet another very cool recipe from that stellar vegan cooking blog, “Oh My Veggies“.

Classic BLTs, vegan style! Smoky eggplant “bacon” joins up with crispy lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and a spicy homemade cashew mayo slathered on your favorite sandwich bread. Sandwich nirvana.


Eggplant bacon:
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1 medium eggplant (about 1 pound) sliced lengthwise into 1/4 inch slabs

Sriracha cashew mayo:
1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for 4-8 hours then drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (1 large lemon)
3 tablespoons plain soy or almond milk
1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce (less or more to taste)
1/4 teaspoon salt

BLT sandwiches:
8 slices sandwich bread
Sriracha cashew mayo
Eggplant bacon
4-8 romaine lettuce leaves
1 large or 2 small ripe tomatoes, sliced

I haven’t had time to get permission to re-post here so please hop on over for the instructions on how to put this gem of a sandwich together.

In the meantime, if you are looking for a really nice sandwich idea, grab some hummus (whether you make it yourself or have some on hand from the store), slather it on your favorite bread and add thinly sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion or anything along those lines that take your fancy. Delicious!

Bye for now.

    1. I believe the original author of the recipe who also took the photograph said she used bread she already had. I don’t know if it’s homemade or not but agree the sandwich looks delicious. I had fun making this and used my favorite bread.
