My son loves asparagus – so much so that I don’t tell him I’m making it ahead of time, or he’ll throw a tantrum while it cooks #veganproblems. I delighted him the other day with not one but two of his favorite foods, adding vegan bacon slices into this easy side dish. My favorite brand for little kids is Lightlife, which has a mild flavor. For a smokier, more intense bacon dish, try this with Tofurky’s maple bacon tempeh.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and chopped
- 2 Lightlife bacon slices, finely chopped
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the asparagus and cook for 10 minutes.
- Halfway through cooking, add the bacon, stirring frequently until the asparagus is tender and the bacon is crisp.
