“Leinana Two Moons’ debut cookbook Baconish is a sinless celebration of all the many animal-free ways you can enjoy bacon—and then some. Not only has she crafted ten separate recipes for vegan bacon, utilizing everything from tofu to seitan to eggplant to carrots, but she also includes pig-free variations on things like pulled pork and pineapple-glazed ham. If that weren’t enough, she then goes on to offer a full, honest-to-goodness cookbook’s worth of recipes featuring all the different varieties of vegan bacon, from breakfast straight on through to dessert.” – Britt. “Baconish by Leinana Two Moons: Book Review + Giveaway.” Leaves of Kale. 5 May 2016
“One of the things that I love about this book (besides the recipes), is that a lot of the recipes are gluten-free or can be easily made that way. Especially since that is the way I have to swing (thank you so much gluten-intolerance!). Other than the seitan bacon, the other bacon recipes appear to be gluten-free. So in the recipes, you can easily swap the seitan bacon out for a GF one, or use gluten-free bread, flour or pasta or pizza crust. You get the idea. But if you’re not gluten-free, there are lots for you too.

“I hope you buy this cookbook. In fact, I hope every vegan and vegetarian buys two copies of this book, one to keep and one to give to someone who thinks they could never be vegan/veg because of bacon. Now they can.” – Kris Giovanini. “Review: Baconish + Recipe for Quiche Lorraine.” Vegans Eat What. 18 May 2016
“[Baconish] is filled with all the good things about bacon (salty, sweet, smoky, crispy) but without any of the bad things (saturated fats, cholesterol, animal cruelty & murder). If you love the taste of bacon, this book is a must! With the easy to follow recipes, delicious plant-based bacon is only minutes away. The next time someone says to a vegan, “mmm, bacon,” they should reply, Baconish!” – M. Suchman, Amazon
