Raw, Vegan BLT!

I used to love it when my mom made BLT’s for dinner. My mom was quite the cook and dinner was usually a fully cooked, pretty elaborate meal. Having a sandwich for dinner was not the norm and signified a more relaxed dinner.



I have been wanting to make a raw, vegan BLT for quite some time. Having tried many different recipes for a raw bread, I finally came up with one that reminds me of the wheat bread I miss. No, it is not gluten free, as I am using wheat berries and I don’t have a substitution yet. But I will work on it. Eggplant bacon, tomato and a avocado “butter” round out this sandwich. You can certainly substitute plain avocados for the avocado butter if you choose.

    Thanks, I´ve been looking for a raw bread recipe for bread that can also be eaten with sweet spreads. This looks great! Is the 116 degrees for drying the wheat berries Fahrenheit?

    Hello. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations. I know this is an older post. If you see this comment, I am wondering if I can substitute buckwheat groats for the wheat berries?

    Do you use the rectangular sprouter for the wheat berries or would the easy sprouter works?

      Personally I don’t like the easy sprouter. I use glass sprouting jars.

    Hello Susan,
    I have visited your website for the last two years, however, this is the my first time commenting on your blog .
    I wanted to know what might I substitute for the apple in the bread recipe above. I practice proper food combining and do not want to mix the apple with the grains. Should I substitute more zucchini ? Please let me know what you think as the bread seems nice and pliable. Does it hold up well to moisture as some breads tend to fall apart.
    Thank you for your sharing and creativity. Look forward to hearing from you.

    I read the above comments about the berries being bad? I just bought them and the tails didn’t start coming until the third day. But is it possible for the berries to ferment before they start sprouting? And, should I not eat this bread? Will it hurt me if I eat “fermented” bread, ha.

    Hi, I just made the bread portion of this recipe and the wheat berries stink like they are fermenting after the were soaking for 2 days. Even after washing/rinsing and dehydrating they still stink. Any ideas? Are they suppose to smell like they’re fermenting? The bread now has a faint taste of the smell too, if that makes sense. Did I do something wrong? I soaked the berries and drained/rinsed them each day for 3 days. Am I missing something? Thanks!

      No, they should smell fresh, not fermented. You could have a bad batch or they possibly got too warm. I would not use them. Cheers!
