When you want a BLT but you're vegan (and don't want bread) there's my Vegan BLT Pasta with Tempeh Bacon and avocado for comfort food.

Vegan, Oil-free, Nut-free, Can be Gluten-free


  • 16 oz pasta of choice (I used oriechette) (use GF pasta if needed)
  • 2 cups diced or shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 2 cups sliced grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 2 large avocados, diced
  • 1 batch tempeh bacon (or use 8 oz store-bought vegan bacon)
  • 1 batch vegan mayo (or use 2 cups store-bought vegan mayo


  1. Boil pasta according to package directions.
  2. While pasta is cooking, blend up mayo if making, and slice vegetables. Chop or crumble the bacon into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Drain pasta and add back to pot or a large bowl. Stir mayo in well.
  4. Fold in the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy!
