Notes

This twist on an old American classic, the BLT, is just as good as the original.

Ingredients

  • 12 slices soy bacon 
  • 2 large whole wheat pitas, cut in half 
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) soy mayonnaise 
  • ¼ cup (50 ml) fresh basil leaves 
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • Freshly ground black pepper, optional 

Directions

1. Cook bacon strips according to package directions. Let cool slightly.

2. Carefully separate pitas to open pockets. Spread one-quarter of the soy mayonnaise over inside bottom of each pita half. For each pocket, top mayonnaise with one-quarter each of the basil leaves and tomato slices. Place 3 strips of bacon over tomatoes. Season with pepper to taste, if using. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Variations:

Chop the basil leaves and stir into the mayonnaise, then spread over the pitas.

Soy Bacon, Basil and Tomato Sandwich: If you prefer a more traditional presentation, substitute 8 slices whole wheat bread, toasted, for the pitas. Continue with Step 2.
