Bake on the middle rack for 12 to 14 minutes, flipping halfway, until flakes are mostly dry and turning golden on the edges. Just keep an eye on the coconut during the last few minutes of baking as it can go from golden brown to deep burnt brown fairly quickly.) The coconut flakes will further crisp up as they cool.

When hot, add eggplant slices in a single layer, working in batches if needed. Reserve marinade. Cook until the eggplant slices are browned on bottoms, about 3-5 minutes.

 Red Beans Bacon


VEGAN Bacon beans

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 cup dried  small red beans
  • 1/3 cup whole grain buckwheat groats (not buckwheat flour)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/3 tsp rubbed sage
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1-1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke*
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1-1/2 tbsp coconut aminos (if no need to be soy-free, sub bragg’s, tamari, or soy sauce)
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1-1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (may sub any oil you prefer)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preparation :

Rinse the beans and buckwheat, place in large bowl covered with several inches of cold filtered water; let soak overnight.Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.Drain and rinse the soaked beans and buckwheat.  Place in the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade, along with all of the other ingredients. Pulse several times to combine, scrape down the sides and bottom of bowl and continue pulsing until uniform, but not completely pureed. Line a 9 x 13 casserole dish or rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. Place bacon batter in pan and spread evenly with a spatula. You may choose to spray another piece of parchment paper lightly with baking spray and press the paper on top of the mixture and flatten with your hands. Remove and discard the top piece of parchment paper, then use a spatula to spread over and fill in any bare spots. Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Slice into 24-32 strips, whatever size you prefer, I cut mine into 1 inch by 4 inches slices  At this point freeze any strips your don’t plan on eating immediately. Frozen strips can go straight into the skillet at a later date, no need to thaw first. To fry, heat a skillet with a small amount of oil and fry both sides to desired level of crispiness. You may also choose to fry slices in cooking spray, for a less crispy, but still very delicious result.

Crisp Vegan Bacon

Ingredients :

  • 1 tablespoon paprika
    or 1 tablespoon smoked paprika, not raw
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2-3 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 1 tablespoon agave, or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons water, or a little more to thin mixture

Preparation :

Mix all ingredients, except eggplant.  Lay the slices out on parchment paper. Brush one side of the sliced eggplant lightly with mixture, add water to mix as needed. I use my fingers or a pastry brush. Turn each slice over, and brush the other side. The eggplant will become soft and if you like you can shape it to resemble real bacon. Transfer with the parchment to mesh dehydrator sheets. Dehydrate at 115 degrees till crisp, flipping and transferring to mesh sheets 1/2 way through. Mine took about 12 hours as they were very thin. Store in glass jars 2 weeks. If they wilt, you may re-crisp in dehydrator about 1 hour. Adjust all ingredients to your own taste. Quantities also vary according to the size of your eggplant, and how thinly it is sliced. I use organic eggplant, which is usually a bit smaller than conventional.


  • 6-8 large carrots
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Baked Carrot Bacon

  • 6-8 large carrots
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation :

Preheat your oven to 400. Slice carrots into thin strips using either a mandolin or food processor to keep them uniform.In a small bowl, whisk together broth, Braggs, olive oil, liquid smoke, and smoked paprika. Then, in a shallow dish, toss sliced carrots with broth combination until carrots are completely coated. Arrange carrot slices on a foil-wrapped baking sheet so that they don’t overlap. Put in oven and bake for 7 minutes. Pull baking sheet from the oven and flip carrots. Put baking sheet in the oven to bake for another 7-8 minutes. It might take more or less time depending on how thick or thin you sliced your carrots.You’ll know your carrot bacon is done when the edges are crispy and the center of each slice looks dry. Move carrot bacon to a plate with a paper towel to soak up any extra oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Let cool to room temperature before crumbling over a salad or putting in a sandwich. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
