Vegan BTL Sandwich

The sandwich you never knew you needed in your life . This is our take on the classic BLT sandwich – made vegan and healthy, also known as a TLT. We used smoky, crispy tempeh to replicate the flavour and texture of bacon. The perfect complement to some crispy lettuce and juicy tomato on toasted bread! We also added some avocado to add some healthy fats and to make this sandwich extra filling, but feel free to leave this out.
