Vegetarian Recipes: Facon

Bacon is popular pork speciality around the world. As a vegetarian, I find myself discovering new ways to recreate this carnivore classic. And in my quest, I found various ways to make facon involving some of my favorite herbs and vegetables.

As a foodie, I am always in the kitchen. Whether it is trying a new recipe that I found on Yahoo! Shine or simply creating my own. In this case, I decided to create and try a new facon recipe.

For this facon recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

1 Cup of Dried Adzuki Beans (You can also use soy beans and/or mung beans)

1 Cup of Raw Buckwheat Groats

3 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil

3 Tablespoons of Grade B Maple Syrup

2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce

2 Tablespoons of Nutritional Yeast

2 Tablespoons of Garlic Powder

2 Tablespoons of Onion Powder

2 Tablespoons of Paprika

2 Tablespoons of Black Pepper

2 Tablespoons of Kosher Salt

2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar

1 Tablespoon of Tomato Paste

1 Tablespoon of Dry Mustard

1 Tablespoon of Molasses

1 Tablespoon of Apple Cider

First and foremost, it is key to soak the Adzuki beans with the Buckwheat groats in the same bowl. You don't need to season water, as fresh water works perfectly. The key is soaking them until they become relatively soft, but not mushy. Soak for 3-4 hours.

Once the beans and the groats have soaked, you want to drain them. It is key to make sure they are fully drained because the water will create a lot of mush (which is what you want to avoid).

As you continue, you want to add and combine all of your ingredients that are remaining into the same bowl with the Adzuki beans and Buckwheat groats. Blend until it forms a paste-like consistency. The texture should not be slimy nor should it be mushy.

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

In order to create amazing Facon, it is key to use a flat pan. If you don't have one, use a baking sheet or a pan that has somewhat of a flatter service. You will also need baking paper and before you apply your mixture, you are going to want to add a little more oil. For this particular recipe, I love using coconut oil.

Now you are going to want to start spreading the entire mixture out onto the flat pan. You want to spread it out thin. After you are done spreading this all out, you want to bake for 15 minutes. It is important to check sporadically. You want the top to be dry and/or brown, but not burnt.

Are you having fun yet? Once 15 minutes have lapsed, you want to cool for about 15-20 minutes. As you continue, it is important to remove the pan from the baking paper and lay on a flat surface. When I created my facon, I chopped it into 20 pieces, however; some people like to cut more and sometimes even less.

Congratulations! Your facon is done. And although it is done, it will still be a little soft. This is normal. You will want to take your pieces and put them in an airtight container and put them in the fridge or freezer. I like to take half of the facon and store it in the freezer, with the other half remaining in the fridge.

Splendid Chef Garlic Press


When Tomoson offered the opportunity to try a garlic press, I have to admit that I was really interested simply because I have been searching for a good one for the longest time. And recently, it was great to have the chance to try Splendid Chef's Garlic Press. So, what did I think?


PROS
What I found so amazing about this garlic press is the fact that it is not only easy to use, but it makes everything a lot more efficient and as a result, it is as effective if you do it the traditional way. You don't have to chop anything, peel anything, and worry about cleaning up really anything unless you want to clean up the garlic press after use.
This garlic press is made with the highest quality of stainless steel, which is quite impressive. Especially if you are looking for a product that will never fall apart and last a long time. There is nothing better than a strong and durable product that really works. It is also quite easy to wash and even works in the dishwasher.

CONS
If you are suffer from an allergy to stainless steel, you are obviously not going to be interested in this garlic press.
This is amazing for garlic, but if you try to press other herbs and vegetables such as Ginger and Turmeric root, you may have a tough time doing so.
Splendid Chef's Garlic Press is available at Amazon for $12.99. With a 68% off savings from the original price of $39.99, this is an incredible deal. Would I use this garlic press again? Yes. Would I recommend this garlic press to a friend? Absolutely. For more information about this garlic press, simply click here right now.

Supernova 300 LED Camping and Emergency Lantern


When browsing Amazon, I discovered the 300 Lumens Ultra Bright LED Camping and Emergency Lantern. It is a hand-held, LED device powered D batteries. I am a woman who loves adventure, as I am always hiking and camping. So, I decided to purchase it. What did I think?
 


PROS
 
When I first received this product, I really enjoyed the size of it. Although it isn't extremely small nor portable, it is compact and very easy to work with.
Using 300 lumens of brightness, this light is fantastic for hiking, camping, and even an emergency. The slow-pulse indicator really helps tremendously, especially in emergencies. I live in Bozeman, MT so of course, I found myself really appreciating this when the power went out. It is phenomenal for emergency type situations.
The LED lights generate heat, which can last up until a week. This lantern is guaranteed up to 100,000 hours of use. That is 6 million minutes.
This lantern is made with sturdy materials , such as plastic molding and rubber. It is quite durable and because of this, it is also water resistant too.
When it comes to safety and security, this device is a safer than candles are. It also lasts much longer.
 
CONS

 
Although I am fan of the blinking emergency LED, I can see how it can annoy someone. There is no way to disable this feature. It was designed to make sure you can find the actual switch itself, so there is no way of disabling this.
The color is a forest green shade. Although it is decent, I think it would be better if Supernova offered other colors such as pink, gold, silver, etc. If you are looking for another color, you may not find this one appealing.
Like many products, this one uses foreign manufacturing. If you are not a fan of products made in China, you may not find this LED lantern appealing.
You can purchase Supernova's 300 LED Lumens Ultra Bright LED Camping and Emergency Lantern at Amazon for $35. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes. For more information about this product, simply click here.

KeepCool Wine Chiller Stick


I have a confession to make, recently I have been obsessed with wine. I wouldn't say that I am a connoisseur, but I am definitely savvy in a sense where I am getting there. When browsing Tomoson, I discovered a really great opportunity to try a wine chilling product. Recently, I had the opportunity to try Amor-Vinum's KeepCool Wine Chiller Stick. So, what did I think?



PROS
The simplicity of this item is fantastic, as it is extremely versatile. All you have to do is freeze the chiller for about a half an hour. As you are doing this, uncork your favorite wine (and don't forget to remove the foil crown, before doing that). Then, place the rod into the wine. As you continue, just screw the pourer attachment to the rod, and pour your drink into a wine glass.
Not only does this product work to chill your wine, it keeps your wine quite fresh. I put this to the test after opening a bottle of my favorite Moscato. I noticed that the bottle without this particular feature went very flat at a rapid rate.
This is very easy to clean, as well as, store.
What I found great about this wine chiller stick is also that it comes with a complimentary foil cutter, informative instructions, and a great eBook full of amazing facts about wine, etc.

CONS
The cooling rod itself is stainless steel. If you do not prefer to use any type of product with this particular metal compound, you may not find this wine chilling product appealing.
If you are not one who wants to place something in a freezer for 30 minutes or you are looking for something a little less cumbersome, you may not be interested in this Amor-Vinum essential.
The KeepCool Wine Chiller Stick is available at Amazon for $19.97. Would I use this product again? Yes. In fact, I just did. Would I recommend it to a friend? Absolutely. For more information about this product, click here.
