  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 4 slices sandwich bread
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 8 jarred roasted red pepper slices
  • ¼ cup coconut bacon
  • ¼ cup baby arugula or spinach
  1. Mash the avocado in a small bowl using a fork.

  2. Stir in the lime juice, cilantro, and salt. Taste-test the mixture and add more salt if needed.

  3. Place a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat.

  4. Slather one side of each bread slice with butter.

  5. Slather the opposite side of two of the slices with the avocado mash, then top each with roasted red pepper slices, coconut bacon (if using) and arugula or spinach. Close the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices, buttered sides out.

  6. Place one or both sandwiches in the hot skillet (as many as will fit at at time) and cook each sandwich for about 5 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy.

  7. Serve the sandwiches immediately.
