Imagine a hot and crispy BLT sandwich, engulfed in vegan grilled cheese! It might sound too good to be true, but this is the real deal! This vegan BLT grilled cheese is what dreams are made of.. Ooey, gooey, indulgent dreams, that is!

Ingredients for easy vegan blt grilled cheese sandwich

Let’s be honest… The last thing you want to do after a long day of being awesome is cook a huge, elaborate meal. I mean, I’m in the same boat!

That’s when I created this masterpiece; I was hangry, tired, and needed something delicious immediately. (Ideal recipe-writing conditions, if you ask me 😉)

Vegan BLT Grilled Cheese Sandwich Realness

First of all, be warned:
This vegan BLT grilled cheese is the real deal. This isn’t that soggy-ass grilled cheese from a fast food place!

My secret to perfectly crispy grilled cheese? Oiling the bread before cooking!

You can use coconut oil (if you don’t mind the flavor), but I stick with good ‘ol vegan butter for that nostalgic taste… Just look at those grill-lines!

Ingredients Matter!

For this recipe I used:

  • Tempeh Bacon, for a healthier protein-packed punch,
  • Daiya cheese slices,
  • Organic power greens (I have to include greens somehow!),
  • Sliced tomatoes, and
  • Dave’s Killer Bread (no, seriously: It’s killer!)

One last thing: You might be wondering why I add the greens after cooking the sandwich, it’s simple! I can’t stand hot, wilted greens. They might as well not be on there, because I’ll just peel it off.

Adding them after cooking still gives the greens a chance to soften, but not to the point of being a hot wilted mess. “Hip hip, hooray (for non-nasty greens)!”
