Avocado BLT Toast

Plain avocado toast is now a thing of the past. Bump up the protein and the flavor with this plant-based take on a BLT using smoky tempeh bacon, roasted tomatoes and toasted seeds. This is a great easy meal that can be eaten at any time of the day. The sharpness of the arugula is balanced by the sweetness of the bacon and roasted tomatoes — this dish is a soon-to-be staple in your weekly menu.

  • 1/2 the Tempeh Bacon recipe
  • 1 large, ripe avocado
  • 1 small green onion, diced
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped or julienne

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup hemp and sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 4 slices of whole grain bread (we love the seeded variety)

  • Black pepper
  • Oil spray to coat the pan

How To Prepare

  1. Once your have prepared your Tempeh Bacon, set it aside.
  2. Spray a large pan with the olive oil and add the cherry tomatoes. Sear for 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and remove. Alternatively, you can roast the tomatoes on a parchment paper lined sheet pan for 12 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  4. Toss the arugula gently with the teaspoon of olive oil and remaining half of the lemon.

Avocado BLT Toast

  • Add freshly sliced chilies to top your toast for a spicy kick.
