Coconut Bacon

Coconut Bacon | A vegan diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out on smoky bacon flavor! Add meatless bacon to pasta dishes, sprinkle over roasted vegetables (like asparagus or Brussels sprouts), add to vegan BLT sandwiches, or meal-sized salads, like a vegan Caesar salad. For breakfast, serve coconut bacon with tofu eggs and skillet potatoes, or as a topping for breakfast waffles. If you like sweet and salty desserts, coconut bacon goes with fudge brownies or on top of creamy maple ice cream!
