Great for topping salads giving it a crunch and a salty flavor. And of course for baked potatoes and cheese fries. I can't say it's a good thing once you learn how to make this. It's a little too easy.
- 1 c coconut flakes (not shredded!)
- olive oil
- soy sauce (few tbsp)
- dash liquid smoke
I have heard of an all natural liquid smoke, but I can’t find it readily at the stores I’ve been to.
- Take the coconut flakes and add to a heated skillet with a small amount of olive oil and start to toast. The coconut shreds have oil in them, so just a small amount of olive oil to start is all you need.
- Add enough soy sauce to coat the coconut shreds and turn them brown (a few tbsp), and then add a dash of liquid smoke to give it that smoky flavor/smell. Toast in the skillet while stirring continuously. The sugar coming off of the coconut shreds will make it stick and burn if you don’t keep stirring.
- Once it’s toasted to your liking, turn off heat and set aside ready to use!
