For the Shiitake Bacon:
2 medjool or 4 regular dates, pitted
1 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos or reduced sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup water
7 ounces shiitake mushroom tops, thinly sliced
For the Avocado Mayonnaise:
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon chopped rosemary
6 slices (100% whole wheat) bread or 3 (100% whole wheat) pitas or wraps
lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced onion


To make the shiitake bacon, mash together dates, Bragg Liquid Aminos, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin and water in a medium bowl. Add the sliced mushrooms and toss until mushrooms are well coated with date mixture. Spread evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake or dehydrate at 175 degrees F until mushrooms are dried and browned, about one hour.

To make the avocado mayonnaise, mash together the avocado, vinegar, nutritional yeast and rosemary in a small bowl.

Toast bread or pita, spread with avocado mayonnaise and add shiitake bacon, sliced tomato, sliced onion and lettuce. If making a wrap, add ingredients and roll up.
