It has the right amount of crunch and saltiness and flavor without that odd aftertaste a lot of soy bacon gives. The slight coconut flavor is very pleasing!
I tried it as toppers on a salad an then a recipe my friend Jan shared with me. I have yet to mix it in to see if it hold up to moisture or cooking but I have my doubts that I will have enough. It is great to snack on too!
Here is a terrific recipe that it compliments and called for real bacon on top. It also called for shrimp and I subbed tofu instead.
Old Florida Style Soup
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tsp. garlic
1 (1 lb. 12 oz) can Ro*tel tomatoes with chili peppers
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 carrot, sliced thin
2 med. Celery sticks, sliced
2 med. Potatoes, cubed
2 tsp. salt
1/2 lb. cubed extra firm tofu (pressed and seasoned with old bay)
1/2 cup Coconut Bacon
Sauté onion and garlic. Add tomatoes, and add rest of ingredients to onion. Bring to boiling point, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Add tofu and heat through. Garnish with Coconut Bacon.
