If you’re a meat-eater turned vegan or just looking to eat more plant-based, you might be missing your dear old friend bacon.
Instead of backsliding when you feel a craving coming on, In The Know’s Nick Rudzewick learned how to make these bacon-flavored crispy carrots. With the right seasonings, you can transform the taste and texture of healthy carrots into your favorite indulgent breakfast food.
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 Tablespoon of soy sauce
1/4 Teaspoon liquid smoke
Step One: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step Two: Cut carrot sticks into thin slices. Pro-tip: a vegetable peeler works best for super thin — or extra crispy — strips.
Step Three: Combine the maple syrup and soy sauce in a mixing bowl.
Step Four: Add in the liquid smoke, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika into the bowl. Then stir together.
Step Five: Place the marinade in a Ziplock bag. Add the carrot strips and shake them up in the bag to thoroughly coat them.
Step Six: Put the marinated strips on a greased baking sheet with aluminum foil. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and enjoy your yummy vegan bacon carrot strips.
