Coconut bacon? Why yes! I first haphazardly stumbled upon this insanely delectable treat a few months ago while traveling. I bought a bag and was addicted at first bite. I brought it home and vegans & non-vegans alike couldn’t stop eating it. I knew I had to recreate it because it would become a staple in our pantry & boy was I right!
So it has the smokiness of bacon, the crunch factor & is totally healthy v. the real deal. You can use it virtually in the same manner – like topping you salad, baked potato etc. But wait… this is coconut so let’s travel down other avenues of usage. Topping vegan yogurt (my new favorite is So Delicious), vegan ice cream, cereal, roasted veggies, mixed in granola… anywhere you want to create that sweet/salty/smoky flavor profile. OHHHH and think of all the holiday food you can top with it!?! Mashed potatoes, green beans, asparagus… yum! So many uses & so little time. And yes, straight up eating is also quite acceptable.
