As we move towards the Summer Holidays I plan to highlight some delicious, affordable and easy to cook picnic and BBQ recipes. I am very excited to announce that to kick this off, I have a series of vegan picnic ideas from Louise Palmer-Masterton , who is the founder of multiple award-winning restaurants Stem & Glory.

The first in this series is a delicious Vegan BLT. So if you want to cook something that is part of an award-winning restaurants menu, now is your chance!

The ‘VLT’ (Vegan BLT)

Makes 2-4 rounds of sandwiches depending on the bread size

This has been on our menu at Stem & Glory Cambridge for years and it’s an absolute winner.

The trick is making the tempeh bacon super thin and super crispy and having just the right amount of mayo to make it sing!

Vegan BLT
Yields2 Servings
Total Time35 mins
Vegan BLT
 200 g tempeh(you can buy this fresh or frozen - if frozen defrost completely before using.
 1 large tomato
 baby gem lettuce
 vegan mayo
For the marinade
 100 ml tamari
 ½ tsp smoked paprika(optional)
 1 tsp liquid smoke available at most supermarkets
 1 tsp maple syrup
1

Vegan BLT
2

Mix the marinade ingredients. Thinly slice the tempeh. Marinade for 5-30 mins (tempeh usually soaks up marinade really well)

3

Shake the excess marinade off the tempeh and shallow fry in a little olive oil until crispy and very slightly charred around the edges.

4

To build the sandwich. Spread vegan mayo on both slices of bread. On one side add a layer of sliced tomato, a layer of lettuce, then a layer of the crispy tempeh. Top with the second slice. Cut into triangle quarters and enjoy. Tip - with this sandwich make sure you add enough mayo so it dribbles out slightly for the full experience!

5

You could also make this with thinly sliced tofu - marinade for longer.
