Vegan Bacon Substitute Recipes

I'm always using these homemade vegan bacon recipes, and instead of telling you how to do them every time, here they are in a separate post. The coconut bacon is best for recipes that call for "strips" of bacon, while the mushrooms are great for bacon bits.

Simple Coconut Bacon
Ingredients
3 large handfuls of bulk coconut
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoon soy sauce/ tamari
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
Directions
Place coconut in a shallow baking pan. Mix other ingredients together and coate coconut well. Cook in preheated 400 degrees F 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.

1 4 oz. can mushrooms (or 1/2 C diced mushrooms)
olive oil
black pepper
hickory bacon salt
