Hello! This is a super quick post for a super quick sandwich. I have been racing the clock all morning trying to get errands and chores done. My friend S and I are meeting for a lunch run and I had to eat properly before heading out. This sandwich is quick, light and satisfying. The main thing that takes a bit of time to prepare is the “bacon”. With my quick version, it takes only 10 minutes (no marinating this time). I hope you try it out!

Mushroom “Bacon” and Avocado Sandwich

1 lb. mushrooms, crimini or button or portabella
a few pinches salt
1 tbsp oil (grape seed, olive, etc.)
1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
dash or two of garlic powder
dash or two smoked seasoning or liquid smoke
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 slices bread
1 tbsp vegenaise or mayo or your choice
2 lettuce leaves, washed and dried
1/4 avocado, sliced
1 tomato, sliced
salt and pepper to taste

Clean and slice the mushrooms. Place the 1 tbsp oil and half the mushrooms in a heated cast iron skillet in a single layer, sprinkling with a pinch of salt:

Let the mushrooms cook until lightly browned on the first side. Scoop them to the side and repeat with the other half of the mushrooms. When these are brown on the bottom, stir together and sauté for a minute or two until they are cooked and a bit dry. Sprinkle over the mushrooms: tamari, garlic powder, smoke ingredient and maple syrup. Stir and turn off heat.

Toast the bread, if you like. Slather some mayo of your choice on one slice and top with the tomato. On the other slice layer the avocado. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Top with lettuce and “bacon”. Press slices together and eat. Enjoy!
