The Rawtarian's ThoughtsBy The Rawtarian
I bet you never even thought about having a BLT sandwich ("bacon, lettuce and tomato") while still living the raw food lifestyle, did you?
Well, I didn't either. But here it is! A raw friend of mine introduced this concept to me, and I fell in love immediately.
And no, that's not real bacon of course. Nor is it even eggplant bacon (which, in my experience is a !@# to make in the dehydrator and doesn't even taste very good anyway).
Nope, this raw food bacon substitute is...drumroll please...dulse seaweed! Dulse stores really well when kept dry. (If you don't have dulse, you can use a sheet of nori seaweed and cut it into strips, as I've done in this photo. Nori may be easier to find because it is used to make sushi rolls and is quite common.)
And what raw BLT sandwich would be complete without raw mayonnaise? Just like any good sandwich, the mayo is a big part of the draw, in my opinion. (Relax, I mean raw vegan mayo of course!)
I can eat 2-3 or even 4 "sandwiches" per meal. Very easy to pull together, especially if you already have a batch of raw vegan mayonnaise in the fridge.
You can store raw mayonnaise in refrigerator for up to a week.
Do not store assembled raw BLT sandwiches in fridge (or at all) because the dulse will get soggy really fast. Always put the dulse on last--right before eating.
So easy and yet... so good! One of my newest addictions lately and I wanted to share it with you.
