So this an awesome dish that my mum and I made during Christmas last year, and it seriously tasted SO GOOD.

For the dressing, we blended:
1/2 cup soaked cashews
A dash of lemon juice
A teaspoon of seeded mustard
A teaspoon of dried chives

When it reached a creamy consistency, we mixed it in with a bowl of boiled and cut potatoes.

For the coconut bacon, I tweaked The Simple Veganista’s recipe a bit (simply because I didn’t have Liquid Smoke on me, and I wasn’t too keen on the maple syrup:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
3 1/2 cups coconut flakes
mineral salt for sprinkling, optional
coconut oil, for greasing

So I preheated the oven to 160 degrees (Celsius), and while that was warming up I mixed the soy sauce, paprika and coconut flakes, then I spread it all on some baking paper and placed in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on it cause they burn quickly! They should come out brown and crispy.

We then sprinkled the coconut bacon on our potato mixture, along with some more dried chives. Mum decided to add some de-seeded green chillies as well for a little extra zing :)
