Quick Lunch Recipe: Portobello Plant-Based "BLT" Sandwich

The holidays can get busy, so it’s nice to have a quick lunch recipe in your back pocket when you’re up to your elbows in wrapping paper and holiday planning.  Let's face it; sometimes it’s difficult to choose between bacon and good health…this healthy version of a not-so-healthy favorite will help make that decision a little easier. Introducing: a plant-based BLT...or more accurately, PLT - Portobello Lettuce and Tomato. 

Keep in mind that avocado really completed this plant-based BLT - subbing in as a great replacement for mayo!
