Eggplant Bacon
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves
Ever get a random craving for bacon? Sometimes when you're transitioning to a healthier lifestyle it can be fun to re-create old favorites with a healthy spin. While this recipe by Christine Roseberry of Just Glowing with Health does NOT taste exactly like bacon (it's made from a vegetable after all!) it will definitely satisfy a random craving and even looks a little like the real thing too...

Ingredients

1 medium eggplant, peeled and ends removed

2 Tablespoons maple syrup

2 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil

2 Tablespoons coconut aminos

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

(optional) a dash of cayenne

Directions

1) Slice the eggplant in half lengthwise and then halves again, for a total of four halves. Using a mandoline or a sharp knife slice the the eggplant lengthwise thinly. 

2) In a medium bowl stir together all the ingredients except for the eggplant. 

3) Add eggplant slices one at a time, making sure to coat each slice thoroughly. (optional) let them marinate for at least 1/2 hour for maximum flavor. 

4) Spread the eggplant slices onto a dehydrator tray and dry for around 12 hours or until crispy.
