What better way to celebrate Meatless Monday and all of our wonderful turkey friends than with a super simple, delicious Vegan Club Sandwich? Inspired by Fiona the Turkey who I had the pleasure of meeting on my recent visit to Peace Ridge Farm Sanctuary , this sandwich is stacked and packed with so much traditional flavor I guarantee you’ll never miss the turkey, bacon and cheese!
Makes three triple deckers
1-2 tablespoon of oil, olive or vegetable
9 slices whole grain bread, lightly toasted
1 package (15 slices) Deli Style Tofurky Oven Roasted Turkey
1 package (14 slices) Litelife Smart Bacon or tempeh bacon
2 vine ripened organic tomatoes, sliced
2 avocados, sliced
8 leaves organic green lettuce leaves, washed and dried
¼ red onion sliced into thin rings (optional)
¼ cup vegan mayo (or sandwich dressing of choice)
3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Heat a skillet on medium. Add the oil and spread evenly into the pan. Use a little more as necessary. Next add the bacon and fry on both sides until lightly crisped. Drain on paper and set aside. Begin assembling the sandwiches. Lay out three columns of three slices of bread. Spread mayo on the first and last slices. Spread mustard on the center slice. On the bottom slices begin with a layer of lettuce followed by the tomato and onion. Cover those with the center slices of bread. Layer on your turkey, then your bacon and finish with the avocado. Season if desired with a little fresh ground black pepper. Top with the last slice and cut in half or cut into the traditional diagonal quarters.
