Vegan Goat Cheese Bacon Wrapped Dates
Recipe type: Appetizer
dairy, egg, oil, and gluten free, vegan
  • 8 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 3+ tablespoons Vegan Goat Cheese
  • (or your favorite vegan soft cheese)
  • Smoky Rich Bacon mixture (recipe follows - first four ingredients)
  • 2 sheets rice paper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Slice date lengthwise (if your dates are already pitted, look for the slice already made). Fill each date with goat cheese (about one teaspoon each).
  3. Using kitchen scissor, cut rice paper into strips as wide as a Medjool date. Hold single strip under water faucet running cool water, just until it begins to soften. Dip strip into cashew butter mixture until well coated, wrap around filled date. Repeat with all dates.
  4. Make bacon strips with remaining rice paper (I had three strips left).
  5. Bake at 350 °F for 15-18 minutes. Serve warm.
  6. These can be made ahead and popped into the oven right before a party!
