Vegan Hawaiian-inspired Island Fried Rice recipe. 100% plant-based. 100% awesome.
It’s International Bacon Day. What better way to celebrate than by not killing pigs, eh?
Pigs are incredible animals. Not only can they smell out their favorite foods, recognize their friends, and have super sensitive hearing, but they also demonstrate unique character traits and personalities.
Perhaps you’ve heard that pigs are smarter than toddlers? Indeed, pigs are brilliant in their own right. Among their many intellectual skills, pigs can comprehend a situation pretty accurately. When something positive or negative is about to occur, they can sense it (source). When they’re headed to slaughter, for instance, they are fully aware that their friends before them are being killed.
Instead of eating animals, we’ll stick to our compassionate alternatives. Which is why I’m very excited to provide you with this Island Fried Rice recipe with tempeh bacon, served with START! Sauce‘s Pineapple Curry Hot Sauce. START! Sauce is free from artificial and harmful ingredients, providing a low sodium, certified vegan, all natural and great tasting hot sauce that’s versatile enough to include in a range of dishes. (Plus, they have gorgeous labels, and I’m a total sucker for label design!)
START! Sauce has three flavors, and I have all of them! I can’t wait to try them on other recipes.
The pineapple and fakin’ bacon combo is a perfect pair, with the sweet and hot sauce providing a pleasant complement to round out this dish with full flavor.
