Bacon-Persimmon Pasta {Vegan}

Day 213.

I have only previously had persimmons in a sweet treat capacity, but I’ve recently been seeing persimmon paired with bacon. So, of course, I had to try a vegan version. If I had to compare persimmons to anything, I’d call them mushroomy, much like a portabella, with a bit of apricot wrapped in.

I’m over at OAMM again today with Bacon-Persimmon Pasta.

The Results
Holy moly. Why have I not had savory persimmons before. I wanted to make a second batch immediately just to eat this again. Loved it. Seriously fantastic.

    I haven't cooked with persimmons before – I think I need to change that! :) Thanks for linking up with the Hearth and Soul Hop.
