Sultry and Smoky Plant-Based Recipes
From BLTS to Bacon Mac & Cheese

By Leinana Two Moons

Vegan Heritage Press, 2016
Paperback, $21.95

Vegan blogger turned cookbook author of Bacon-ish, Leinana Two Moons found instant inspiration while devouring a vegan BLT on her vacation. It was love at first bite and set her on a path to recreate the exceptional flavor and texture of vegan coconut bacon at home.

Bacon-ish Bacon-ish, Leinana's exceptional vegan cookbook, is devoted to recipes for creating bacon from almost every plant food on the planet, including mushrooms, carrots, eggplant, coconut, tofu, tempeh, seitan, and even bacon morsels made from chickpeas. But that's not all!

Once she prepares the bacon, this author takes those magical plant-based bacon strips and smoky, salty bacon bits and folds them into a banquet of traditional bacon-laden recipes so many vegans had long stepped away from--legendary dishes like Quiche Lorraine, Bacon-Stuffed French Toast, and classic German-Style Potato Salad.

Aptly named, Bacon-ish suggests people would not be feasting on the real thing, but rather an imitation that's bacon-like or bacon-ish. Leinana takes the reader on an exhilarating culinary excursion throughout the realm of bacon-ish recipes, both classic and nuanced.

Leinana has a flair for the unique and can take an old fashioned Monte Cristo Sandwich and turn it into mouth-watering Monte Cristo Waffles shot with seitan bacon and slathered with a delicious raspberry sauce.

She applies her kitchen sorcery to every course from breakfast, soups, and sandwiches to sides, mains, and even sweets that become amazing with a little squidge of bacon. A standard remoulade made of mayo, sour pickles, Dijon mustard, and herbs is totally transformed by the addition of vegan Baconish Bits.

Leinana Two Moons Sweet and Savory Bacon Jam gives morning toast a touch of sunshine with a single serving! And the old favorite peanut butter cookie from this author becomes an instant hit with just 1/4 cup of Baconish Bits gently folded into the batter before forming the cookies. Readers will want to give special attention to page 71 with its awesome-looking apple fritters perked up with a touch of Tempeh Bacon.

The book features not only a mountain of venerated, old, bacon-infused standbys, but also plenty of original recipes that become more satisfying with morsels or strips of bacon. Bacon Fried Rice makes simple fried rice much tastier. French Lentil Salad is a love match with Tofu Bacon. Tempeh Bacon finds the spotlight with Baconish Bean Chili.

Anyone thumbing through this innovative cookbook, with its attractive full color photos, can easily attune to its appeal with its simple, yet tasteful food styling. Every color-infused photo is tastefully plated, and looks good enough to eat.

Bacon-ish is a fun cookbook for every household because today more and more families find they are cooking vegan dishes for one or more family members. Turning the pages, readers will find mouth-watering bacon-infused recipes and eye-appealing photos. Vegans, new and experienced, will welcome the return of bacon in its new, delightful, plant-based mode that makes foods zing with captivating, salty, savory, and smoky flavor.
