I have only previously had persimmons in a sweet treat capacity, but I've recently been seeing persimmon paired with bacon. So, of course, I had to try a vegan version. If I had to compare persimmons to anything, I'd call them mushroomy, much like a portabella, with a bit of apricot wrapped in.
I'm over at OAMM again today with Bacon-Persimmon Pasta.
Holy moly. Why have I not had savory persimmons before. I wanted to make a second batch immediately just to eat this again. Loved it. Seriously fantastic.
Today's Meatless/Vegan Monday meal is Chaya of My Sweet and Savory's Thai Rice Pancakes. Yes, you had me at Thai. Yum. These are so creative, I love it.
