Today, I bring to you another example of just how messed up the US processed food industry is:
BacOs are vegan.
Yeah, BacOs, like, bacon bits – there’s no bacon in them.
(Note: vegan does not equal healthy. They’re made with genetically modified soy and a bunch of chemical crap… but they sure do remind me of my youth, and that tends to lead to some good tasting eats).
I picked up another alien (aka romanesco) cauliflower at the farmers market and was trying to figure out what to do with it. The onset of chilly fall weather has me clamoring for comfort food, so I decided to turn my Christmas Tree Veggie into cheezy bacon cauliflower.
I boiled the romanesco cauliflower for 5 minutes or so, then drained it and combined it with somecheddar, soymilk, and BacOs.
It was a glorious way to eat my veggies!
