Give them a try and I promise you will not be disappointed. Forget everything you remember from your childhood about these cruciferous vegetables.

While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, prepare the no bacon dressing. In a small bowl, whisk the coconut aminos, maple syrup, molasses, and liquid smoke together. Pour over the warm roasted Brussels sprouts and toss to combine. Top with pomegranate arils and serve.

I really hope that you guys give these Brussels sprouts a try. And when you do, be sure to let me know what you think. Enjoy friends!

Vegan Bacon Buttered Corn

This vegan bacon buttered corn is only 5 ingredients and is ready in 15 minutes. A quick, simple side dish that’s perfect for the hectic holiday season.

I’ll admit. This is a dish I’ve been making for years. Even before my vegan days. And it’s become a family favorite at the holidays. So now that my family is vegan, I decided that I had to turn this into a vegan dish as well. An insanely simple side, this dish requires only 5 ingredients and can be thrown together only 15 minutes before everyone sits down for the big Thanksgiving dinner. It’s salty, crunchy, rich, and familiar. The perfect accompaniment the whole family can enjoy.

Vegan Coconut bacon

Before we dive into the corn, let’s take a second to make the coconut bacon. Now, you can use any vegan bacon your prefer just as long as it crumbles well. That being said, I also wanted to include a coconut bacon recipe in this post, just in case you don’t already have a vegan go-to bacon.

Now, this coconut bacon is just about as easy to make as the vegan bacon buttered corn. Simply line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 325*F. In a medium-sized bowl combine coconut aminos, olive, oil, maple syrup, liquid smoke and paprika. Once combined add unsweetened coconut chips and gently stir to coat. Spread the coconut over the parchment paper in an even layer and bake for 15 minutes stirring every 5 to prevent burning. Allow the “bacon” to cool completely before crumbling or storing for later use.

Coconut “Bacon”

Vegan bacon that crumbles just like the real thing. Crispy, smokey, and sweet this coconut bacon will add texture and flavor to salads, pastas, and roasted vegetable sides.

Bacon Buttered Corn

Once you’ve prepared the “bacon” it’s time to assemble the buttered corn. In a large skillet melt the vegan butter over medium heat. Once melted add the frozen corn. There’s no need to thaw it beforehand. Stir the corn to coat with vegan butter and allow to cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes. Add more butter if you feel that the corn is looking too dry or if you just prefer really buttery corn. Once the kernels are thawed and warmed through remove from the heat and add the paprika, chopped chives, and crumbled “bacon”. Serve warm and enjoy the time you’ve saved in the kitchen by savoring the company of your holiday guests.

Enjoy friends!
