Good Friday being a strict day of fasting and consuming of vegan food only, this BLT-inspired sandwich came together easily and quickly. Mustard (any kind as long as it's dairy-free) can replace vegan mayonnaise if you prefer. As we were enjoying our new sandwich creation, Mr. Cookgirl suggested next time stirring in a little bit of Tabasco 'Chipotle" sauce to the mayo; or maybe substitute creamy horseradish...?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the foccacia in half and toast or (pan) grill if desired.
  2. Spread one slice of the focaccia with the vegan mayonnaise. Add 1 1/2-2 slices tempeh bacon per sandwich followed by the bell pepper, lettuce, cilantro and cracked black pepper.
  3. Place the other slice on top and cut in half.

This made a great supper! I used whole grain bread(but wished I had foccacia), regular mayo and made the smoky tempeh bacon. I used tomatoes and red leaf lettuce. The cilantro was a nice touch too. Thanks! Made for Vegetarian Swap March 2013.
