BLT and Potato Wedges Recipe

I know what you’re thinking, vegans, can’t eat BTL’s. And you would be wrong about that. Did you know that LightLife has vegan bacon? It’s pretty good. It’s not health food; it’s a treat. It cooks pretty quickly, so it’s perfect for when you need to eat in a hurry.

If you bought a package every week, it could be pretty costly. I came up with a bacon recipe that uses tofu. It can be ready in as little as 15 minutes, or you can let it marinate for hours to overnight. I usually opt for the 15-minute option as I have a hard time sticking to meal plans.

I love to pair a BTL with french fries or home fries. I love a good crispy potato anyway I can get it. You can omit the oil and use veggie broth if you are oil-free. Also, feel free to change the spices or add more or less to suit your needs. I won’t be offended.


Potato Wedges:
2 medium russet potatoes
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp oil


Peel and wash potatoes. Cut into wedges. Put the potato wedges into a bowl and toss with garlic powder, oil, salt and pepper.

Place in air fryer pan, cook for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. When the timer goes off, flip potatoes and cook for another 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Depending on how thick your wedges are, they may need a little more time. That’s ok, cook for another 5 minutes and see if they are crispy to your liking. No one likes mushy fries.

BTL Wrap

For the bacon:
1 package extra-firm tofu
2 tablespoons tamari
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder.

Everything else:


Combine everything in a bowl, minus the tofu. Thinly slice the tofu. Add the tofu to the mixture. Take a slice of tofu and cover each slice with the mixture; continue until all slices are are covered. Put into a bowl and pour the remaining sauce over the tofu. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and put it into the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.

For each wrap, I cut 3 slices of tomatoes and slice them in half. Put some Vegenaise on the wrap, add 4 slices of bacon, put 3 half slices of tomatoes on the bacon, add 4 more slices of bacon, add the remaining 3 half slices of tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste, then some lettuce, and roll it up.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do 🙂
