I love you, Fakin’ Bacon

When we have the kids for the weekend, I have to abandon my meat-based cooking because my SD is a vegetarian.  Which is good for me and good for us.  Last weekend I made a bacon and gruyere pasta from the Bonne Femme cookbook.  This weekend I made the same pasta, but had to replace the bacon with fakin’ bacon.  And add some olive oil because there is a bit more than a small difference between the amount of fat in thick-cut bacon and tempeh with smoke flavoring.

But yum – I really do love the taste of fakin’ bacon – and should use it as a substitute more often, even when the kids are with us.

And here is a really horrible picture of the pasta with the fakin’ bacon.  So sorry.
