In our Vegan BLTA, the sandwich classic that everyone loves gets a plant-based makeover. Whip up a batch of Chipotle Mayo and get your plant-based bacon, tomato, avocado, and lettuce slices ready. When everything is done, simply arrange your sandwich and enjoy.
Spread Chipotle Mayo over toasted whole wheat bread. Layer with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and plant-based bacon. Serve.
*Store-bought vegan bacon may also be used.
