Refreshing! Looking into my mother’s fridge yesterday, I found a little store-bought container of tabouleh. I looked at the ingredient list and replicated the recipe, tasting to find good proportions, and substituting quinoa sprouts for the cooked buckwheat traditionally used in tabouleh. Do make sure you wash the mint especially throroughly, and only use the leaves, as it has little hairs on it that can irritate one’s mouth. The ingredient list indicated that alspice is usually used, but since I didn’t have any non-irradiated alspice on hand, I didn’t include this in my version. I do encourage you to try it with alspice and let me know how it goes!
Makes around 30 to 40 strips - depends on how large your egglplant is
Yes, you read the recipe name right – it is Raw Bacun (Bacon)! I modified this recipe off of one I got from the SAD TO RAW website. I subed agave for honey to make it vegan.The original recipe called for 1 full teaspoon of cayenne! I made this way the first time and it was way to hot for me. So, I modified it to have a lot less cayenne and it turned out wonderful. (AND they actually look like real bacon!)
When I make this for raw potlucks, people are always buzzin about it and asking me for the recipe.
NOTE: This recipe is for home use only. My bf and I sell this for our raw food home business so this is not for commerical sale use! Please respect that! ;)
