Perhaps one of the biggest challenges of being gluten-free is finding enough gluten-free fast food recipes to keep you feeling satisfied. When you’re not prepared, it’s all too easy to slip back into bad habits, reaching for convenience instead of doing what you know is right for your body. Following the gluten-free diet means that you need to take a bit more care in food preparation. You can’t always rely on ready-to-eat foods. Of course, boredom can be another big challenge.

This is an easy recipe, but the bacon itself takes a bit of time. It’s worth it though, if you’ve been craving bacon and trying to stay committed to not eating meat. The key to getting the taste right is using smoked paprika on the eggplant (which becomes “bacon”). Along with the other spices, this gives it a meatier flavor. The dehydration process crisps the “bacon” up nicely, but if you don’t have a food dehydrator, you can get the same effect using the oven at a low temperature. Once you have that “bacon,” use the other ingredients along with a gluten-free bread or wrap to create the perfect sandwich.
