Avocado toast with coconut bacon, cashew cilantro crema , tomato, and hummus on gluten free bread... this crema is super easy to make if you have a food processor/ or high speed blender. And you can put it on salads or bowls, nachos, anything you can think of!
<the recipe for my coconut bacon is here>
Cashew cilantro crema:
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 cup cashews
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
Salt to taste
Handful of Cilantro
1/4 cup of Water *or more
1 Garlic clove
Cayenne pepper optional*
Blend everything in a blender/food processor until completely smooth. Add in more water to thin it out more if you want.
I’m headed out to a photo shoot today that I’ve been looking forward to for a while now. Then I’m gonna start packing for my trip to Mexico cause we’re leaving this week! Exciting times ahead.
Hope y’all have a good day.
Yep- it's a thing. Thats right. COCONUT BACON. Just rolls right off the tongue doesn't it?
Look- in no way shape or form is this supposed to taste like the real thing. Not one bit. Like at all- not at all. If your looking for bacon-y bacon. Turn around, go back from where you were coming from. This ain't it.
Ahem, now for those who have stayed with me. Do you know what bacon bits are? Do you like em? Do you like maple-y bacon bit type taste? Have ya ever had that? Does it sound good to you? Do you like crunchy food? Do you like trying new things that sound weird? Do you like food? If you answered yes to those questions. Then yes- this is definitely something you might be interested in! I'm not trying to waste your time. You know I wouldn't do that to you!
So I like to add this mainly to salads. For me it's pretty much the same as bacon bits. Although I wouldn't go and put this on say, Mac & Cheese or anything. Cause this is a more of a sweet/savory taste. Not your 'average' only savory bacon bit type taste. I want you to try this on whatever you want to try it on though. If you think it's a good idea, hey it might just be one! And if it is- please leave a comment here on what you put it on :) Look- it's weirdly addicting. There was much more bacon sitting on the table when I took that photo that isn't pictured. Cause ya girl ate it. I gave up on the picture cause I had to eat it. My boyfriend loves it too.
