Scale

Ingredients

Tofu Bacon:

  • 12 oz of tofu (1 regular block) sliced into 12 strips
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • oil for frying

Biscuits:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened original nondairy milk
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 11/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cold vegan butter

BLT Toppings:

  • 4 tbsp sweet chilli mustard, mayo or other sauce of choice
  • 8 slices of tomato
  • 2 cups mixed greens or lettuce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Make the biscuits: Mix together the nondairy milk and vinegar and set aside (this is your vegan buttermilk).
  3. In a large mixing bowl add the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt and mix until combined.
  4. Cut or grate butter with a cheese grater into very small pieces. Combine with the flour mixture by hand or with a pastry blender until incorporated into a crumbly mixture that resembles wet sand. Add the buttermilk, stirring with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  5. Use hands to form 4 biscuits approximately 3 inches in diameter. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes, until starting to turn golden brown on top. Remove from oven and let cool.
  6. Make the tofu bacon: Press tofu strips with a clean dish towel or paper towel to remove excess moisture. In a shallow bowl or container, mix together soy sauce, maple syrup, water and smoked paprika. Add tofu strips and submerge. Let sit about 5 minutes.
  7. To a large frying pan on medium heat, add a drizzle of oil. Fry tofu strips a few minutes per side, until starting to crisp.
  8. Assemble the BLTs: Slice biscuits in half and add sweet chilli mustard, mayo or other sauce of choice. Add 3 strips of tofu bacon to each, followed by 2 slices of tomato and a small handful of greens. Enjoy!
