This easy vegan PLT recipe makes the most satisfying sandwich ever!

Not all BLT sandwiches are created equal. Some people opt for adding fried green tomatoes, avocado, or even a fried egg on top. While others like to stick to the traditional version.

My easy vegan version, uses grilled Portobello mushrooms as the “bacon” to give this sandwich a serious punch of flavor. I also opted for gluten free bread, and vegan mayo to make this dish completely vegan friendly.

Even if you’re not vegan, you will love this healthier version of the classic American sandwich.

This easy vegan PLT recipe makes the most satisfying sandwich ever!

The secret to creating a delicious vegan BLT Sandwich is marinating the mushrooms, as long as possible. (I let mine go anywhere from 4-24 hours.) The marinade creates that addicting smoky, sweet flavor that will keep you coming back for more.

What Ingredients do I need for a P.L.T (Portobello Lettuce Tomato) Sandwich?

  • 2 Portobello mushrooms, stems removed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 large tomato
  • Lettuce of your choice
  • Bread of your choice
  • Vegan mayonnaise
This easy vegan PLT recipe makes the most satisfying sandwich ever!

How to cook the mushroom “Bacon”:

I prefer to grill my mushrooms. Simply, cook for about 8-10 minutes on each side, until they are tender and have yummy grill marks.

You can always cook in a skillet or in the oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Once mushrooms are cooked, remove from grill and cut into strips.

Can you store Spicy Olive Oil Bread Dip?

Because this recipe is so simple to make, I usually make a new batch every time I’m craving it. But, if you prefer to make a large batch and save it for the next few days, go for it!

If you do not add the cheese, you can store it in an airtight container in your pantry or kitchen counter for up to a week. If you mix in the cheese, I would store it in your refrigerator. But make sure to let the oil come to room temperature before you attempt to dip.

This restaurant-quality blackened fish sandwich is oh-so easy. It may be deceiving at first glance, but rest assured, you can whip up this up in no time!

WHY COD?

I prefer to use cod in this recipe for a slew of reasons:

  • Cod tends to be a meatier fish, making it perfect for sandwiches.
  • It has a flaky, white flesh.
  • A mild flavor.
  • Although lower in omega-3s than fatty fish, cod can still be part of a healthy diet
