I know, I know, there is no substitute for bacon. And these types of recipes go over much better with my family when I just call it roasted carrots instead of carrot bacon. Which I get. If they hear bacon, they will spend the whole meal making comparisons; but if they are eating roasted carrots they’ll just enjoy the fun flavors. And talk about yummy; tahini, honey, soy sauce, Dijon mustard and liquid smoke.
I didn’t get them cut quite thin enough to really crisp up, but they still tasted unbelievable. I chopped them up and used them as a topping on a cauliflower rice vegetable stir fry. “Yes, mom, we ate all of our vegetables today.” 🙂
