This Vegan Eggplant Bacon Is Everything

Food trends come and go, but eggplant “bacon” is definitely here to stay. If you’ve tried the coconut version, you know it’s delicious. But the texture? Not so bacon-y. Eggplant on the other hand takes this tasty vegan option to a whole new level — just ask Minimalist Baker‘s Dana Shultz, who created the perfect crispy recipe.

Making this heavenly, cruelty-free “bacon” might look hard to do, but it it only takes a few minutes of prep time. After creating thin strips of eggplant using a mandoline slicer, brushing on a marinade of spices, maple syrup, tahini, and vegan Worcestershire, and baking for 20-30 minutes, you’ll be left with a healthy breakfast staple even meat-eaters will dig into.

Oh, and here’s the best part: Eggplant “bacon” doesn’t just taste great — it’s so much healthier, too. With 28 calories and 2.2 g of far per serving compared to 43 calories and 3.3 g of fat in real bacon, it’s basically the answer to the world’s prayers. Grab the recipe right here and try it for yourself.
