I am always looking for a raw food with a “crunch” to it for my salads or just for a snack. These little morsels taste heavenly! Coconut “Bacon” Bits are wonderful. I will admit that they don’t taste 100% like bacon bits but pretty darn close.
As they are drying out in the dehydrator, it will fill your house with the smell of bacon though! They are highly addictive. You can taste a bit of coconut but regardless, they are yummy.
This is what gives the coconut that rustic, bacon / BBQ flavor. Raw Food World sells a wonderful liquid smoke that I highly recommend. To make it, hickory and a little mesquite are burned at a low temperature, then the smoke is captured and diverted into a tunnel. In the tunnel, a constant stream of distilled water is channeled through the smoke to pick up the flavor. The liquid is then filtered to remove any sediment or oil before bottling. There are no other additional ingredients! It is literally nothing but smoke-infused water, with no additives of any kind.

One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage. Daily I get questions regarding substitutions. Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe. I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family. I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item. Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient. Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself. So have fun, don’t be afraid, and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.
