Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich… without the bacon! Unhealthy bacon is subjugated here by Summer Veggie of the Month: aubergines aka eggplants!
This was made by our friend Claire who came to visit from Berlin, she isn’t vegan or even vegetarian, and, to make it even more complicated, she’s French… So she takes food seriously! I would really like to hear from some French Vegans and how they experience being vegan in a country with so much tradition steeped in meat, cream and cheese.
This recipe is originally all American and all carnivorous – but Claire is an open minded maiden and was up for eating and uncooking, vegan style. This is what came out…
Easy Peasy Recipe
For the ‘bacon’
Slice summer aubergines thin but wide – Claire used a carrot peeler
Marinate them in smoked paprika, crushed garlic, cumin, olive oil, sea salt (a pinch), a tsp of nama shoyu, 1tsp agave.
Dehydrate until desired crispy-ness is achieved.
The T/F/L Flax Crackers we used were mild in flavor as the bacon is the star of the sandwich!
and a Tzatziki Veganese Sauce:
1 fresh juiced lemon
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup of hemp milk
blend to desired saucy-ness
