Fried green tomato BLT with seitan bacon
Vegan BLT's are a beloved classic for a reason. Give that quintessential summer sandwich a Southern spin with fried green tomatoes. The tomatoes can be prepared in the air fryer or skillet. Then top them with crisp seitan bacon, lettuce, and a slathering of eggless mayo on toasted bread. Makes 2 sandwiches.
Servings: 2 people
Toast 4 slices of bread in the toaster, until the bread is nutty brown. Remove from toaster and set aside.
Bring a non-stick skillet to a medium heat with oil. Put 4 to 6 slices of seitan bacon in an even layer in the skillet. (You may have to work in batches, if you don't have a large enough skillet.) Some slices of seitan bacon are larger than others. So use the amount of vegan bacon that suits your preferences. For Herbivorous Butcher seitan bacon, 4 slices would be enough for 2 sandwiches. For Upton's Naturals seitan bacon, 6 slices would be a good amount for 2 sandwiches.
Brown the seitan bacon for a few minutes on each side, until the bacon is starting to get brown and a little crispy around the edges. Remove from heat and set aside.
Now it's time to add toppings to the sandwiches. Slather vegan mayonnaise onto each slice of bread. Top two of the toasts with green leaf lettuce, 2 to 3 slices of seitan bacon, and 2 or 3 fried green tomato slices. Then top each sandwich with a remaining slice of toast.
