Amber from Fettle Vegan has developed a simple formula for this faux-bacon: wide coconut flakes tossed with liquid smoke, soy sauce, and maple syrup, and baked until crispy. If the results taste even half as good as this combination sounds, we're in business.
This would make an easy and healthy alternative to frying up bacon for many of our favorite dishes, whether or not you're vegan. Soups garnishes, salad toppers, even vegan BLTs are possibilities here. I also can't stop thinking about savory granola and batches of crunchy trail mix.
