Hello & Happy Tuesday!!

 

 

 

 

While it’s a rarity for me to ever eat pasta (truth), I love anything with spice and shiitake bacon!

 

 

This recipe came to fruition while craving something spicy and savory and of course effortless!!

What I enjoy about this concept is that it has multiple flavor dimensions, cheesy, salty, savory, and spicy all rolled into one. If you even wanted to add a slight hint of sweetness you could also add maple syrup to the marinade for the shiitakes!

 


 

 

 

I found this recipe to be a no brainer and aesthetically pleasing to the eye and my tastebuds!

 

If you love a little fire, recipes with a wow factor and ones that please even the non vegans, you have to try my recipe for vegan Jalapeño Shiitake Bacon Mac n Cheese Burgers!
