Will wonders never cease? I just ran across a recipe for homemade vegan bacon, using coconut as its base. I don’t usually do this, but here’s the recipe:
3 large handfuls of bulk coconut
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoons soy sauce/ tamari
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
Place coconut in a shallow baking pan. Â Mix other ingredients together and coat coconut well. Cook in preheated 400 degree oven until crispy. It will get crispier after it cools. Use in sandwiches or salads as a vegan bacon substitute. May be kept in sealed container for several days.
And here’s a photo of this treat in a vegan BLT wrap. Amazing. People have big old brains sometimes. Looking for more ways to create faux meat products at home? You can probably find them on VegWeb.com.
