It’s been very snowy in the mountains the past couple of days!

To celebrate, I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite vegan creations:  BLTA with sweet potato fries.  This sandwich rocks and tastes exactly like the real thing.  You can use any type of bread or lettuce and it will be delicious.

Handful of shiitake mushrooms

EVOO (Extra virgin olive oil)

Salt, Pepper, Smoked Paprika, Chili Powder

Sweet Potato


Veganaise (Vegan Mayo)



Fresh Greens of your choice

Heat the oven to 375.  Peel & slice the sweet potato into sticks.  Spread on a baking sheet and toss with EVOO, salt, pepper & chili powder.  Roast for 20-25 minutes, stirring around the pan often until they are cooked through and slightly crispy.

Chop the shiitake mushrooms and spread those on another baking sheet.  Toss with EVOO, salt, pepper & smoked paprika.  Roast for 15-20 minutes, checking on often and stirring around.  These should be dark red and crispy but not burnt – have to keep a close eye on these!

When the shiitake bacon and sweet potato fries are ready, toast your bread.  Once the bread is toasted, spread with the veganaise and pile on your shiitake bacon, lettuce, avocado & tomato.  Slice the sandwich in half and enjoy in the vegan goodness you created.

    I just made this and it was delicious! I used coconut oil because I was out of EVOO, and I wouldn’t recommend it as it made everything a bit coconutty. I became vegan about 4 months ago and bacon was one of the harder things for me to give up. This sandwich makes me not even miss it!

      Hi Jessica! That is so awesome to hear. I’m glad you liked it and thanks for the tip about using the coconut oil. You’ll have to try it again with EVOO and get the real experience! 🙂
