WHOA! My most favorite meaty dish ever was the BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato), which I have not had in a billion eons. So, recently, I tried tempeh bacon in Boston (which was quite lovely), but, I decided today to try a recipe I've seen bandied about a lot recently on the internet: Coconut Bacon. Who would've ever thought that coconut could be a suitable bacon substitute? I sure as hell hadn't thought it. But, my friend on Twitter, @VeganGoodThings wrote this killer recipe for coconut bacon. So, being the BLT lover that I am, I tried it out. And I love it. I like the crispiness and the slight maple flavor.
I made 3 small changes to the original recipe:
- slightly less maple syrup
- instead of tamari, I used Braggs Liquid Aminos because that's what I had handy
- I sprinkled mine with a bit of salt before baking
