Coconut bacon

Although I used to love meat, I don’t miss it, generally speaking. What I do miss is that satisfying sensation so hard to achieve with a careless vegetarian diet. Here is where the coconut bacon enters in scene: coconut bacon is able to transform a discrete salad into a proper lunch, a boring soup into a main dish.

How so? Coconut bacon owes its wonder to liquid smoke. This dubious ingredient is actually made of smoke. A quick look at the ingredients should reflect this. Keep your distance from anything besides smoke and water.

I use coconut bacon quite freely, but spinach, soups and sandwiches love it.
