Winter Tempeh BLT! A spicy, smoky vegan BLT sandwich made with spicy mayo sauce, arugula, apple, and homemade tempeh bacon.
If you’re anything like me, then you’re always searching for quick, nourishing meal options. In some ways, I feel like my role as mom has morphed into 24/7 chef. Because someone is always in search of snack, and I’m always the one who answers the call.
Today, I chuckle a little when I think about my pre-kid life. Yes, the one where I’d happily make homemade pasta on a weeknight, where jarred marinara sauce was a taboo, and where I’d easily spend hours making bread from scratch (ha!). Well, those days are long gone.
The truth is, my reality now is that I’ve got mere minutes most days to assemble meals— one of my babes is usually in tears asking for food, and the other is likely in my arms. Above all, my criteria for meals is now— can I open and cook it with one hand? If so, I’m sold.
To make meal prep easy, I make a big batch of my tempeh bacon ahead of time for easy assembling when I’m ready to eat. And yes, this entire meal is one-hand-approved.Print
