Vegan Bacon Mushroom Recipe {MALT is the new BLT}

Vegan Bacon Mushroom Recipe {MALT is the new BLT}

Happy National Bacon Day! Wait, what!? What’s this vegan talking about, celebrating bacon? Hang tight with me, I’m offering up my own meat-free version of a BLT! So, renaming the infamous sandwich to a MALT (because this avo lover added a few slices on top)!

Here’s a truth: I LOVE mushrooms! All kinds, including cremini, portabellos, button, and especially shitake! The taste, texture, minerals, and health benefits are just a few of the reasons I love them so.

And, did you know, shiitake mushrooms help fight cancer cells? This makes my cancer surviving, life thriving heart jump for more! The lentinan in shiitakes help heal chromosome damage caused by anticancer treatments (from a 2006 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine).

Shiitake mushrooms make a perfect alternative to traditional meat-based bacon, and act like little sponges to soak up flavor.

And, if you do happen to choose the traditional bacon goods, opt for the best you can find. With NO antibiotics, added growth hormones, artificial preservatives, animal byproducts, or small crates or cages used for animals, you know you’re getting the highest quality possible.
