Vegan BLT

Posted in : Uncategorized on by : Dani Pipkins Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

When I was a meat-eater, I loved BLT Sandwiches. Since becoming vegan, finding decent bacun hasn’t been an easy task and so buying the processed bacun is something I’ve stopped doing.

As a vegan recipe developer and someone who helps others transition to a plant-based diet from a Standard American Diet (S.A.D), I have created a couple of different ways to make bacun. My bacun marinade is simply out-of-this-world. Trust me.

Here is one way to make a delicious Vegan BLT. I hope you try it out! You will need to marinate these overnight so plan ahead.

This uses dried bean curd sticks, which can be found at any Asian Market. If you do not have one nearby, you can also find them on Amazon and get them shipped directly to your front door.


You may be wondering what Bean Curd Sticks are. I know I had no clue in the beginning. In fact, they sat in my pantry for about 6 months after my first failed recipe attempt. Now that I’m learning more about them I will be creating many more recipes. They happen to be very versatile. This is what happens when people first take the journey into eating tofu. Many people do not know how to cook it and it ends up tasting bland and gross, then, they never want to eat it again. Try, try, try again is my motto!

Bean curd skin is also called tofu skin, yuba, dried beancurd, or soybean skin. It is actually soybean milk skin, made by lifting away the sheet that forms on the surface of heated soy milk. In Chinese cuisine, the skins are a mainstay of the vegetarian diet. These sheets can be dried in flat form, or bunched up into bundles, like these bean curd sticks in the above picture. For the bacun, you want the dried bean curd STICKS.

For the marinade
For the bacun
For the sandwich
  1. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together well.
  2. In a flat dish, lay out your bean curd sticks. Do not layer them.
  3. Pour the marinade over them. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Check at least once and turn the sticks over.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  5. On a hot non-stick griddle or large non-stick frying pan, lay out your bean curd sticks and allow them to sizzle, turning them often. This will create the look of bacon.
  6. Once they have sizzled and gotten dark looking spots and seem to have dried out a bit, place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  7. Place them in the oven and cook for 3 minutes. Remove and allow them to sit. As they sit, they will crisp up.
  8. Mix your mayo with some of your bacun marinade.
  9. Spread the mayo-bacun mixture onto both pieces of your bread.
  10. Lay your crisp lettuce onto the bread, then the tomatoes, then the bacun, then, your other piece of bread. ENJOY!
