Vegan BLT? Actually it’s a vegan BLA. What’s that? Find out on this episode of #LunchBreakLIVE from Avo Cafe in Santa Monica, CA. There is a huge cast of vegan characters in this show. First, we have the vegan husband and wife duo and Avo Cafe owners, Mark and Sher Kopman, and our plant-based guest taste tester, known as the Superfood Goddess, Stephanie Bosco. Stephanie has appeared on #LunchBreakLIVE before making an amazing vegan scramble. It is a great episode so be sure to check it out. And then, of course, there is the Founder of JaneUnChained News Network, Jane Velez-Mitchell!
Stephanie ordered the Svelt Caesar Salad with a scoop of mock tuna, made from young jackfruit. Jackfruit is a fruit native to India and Southeast Asian countries. You can get young, or unripe, jackfruit that’s used in more savory dishes, or you can get ripe jackfruit that has a sweeter taste and a stickier texture. Check out this previous #LunchBreakLIVE where jackfruit was used to make a Non-Chick’n Salad. Jane ordered the BLA (bacon, lettuce, and avocado) with tempeh bacon, lettuce, avocado, and two types of sauces! One spicy of course! They also ordered two amazing smoothies. The banana date smoothie and the green dragon smoothie. Oh my! Plant-based eating never tasted so good.
