The B in a "B"LT

From Mark Reynolds - his recreation of the "B" in the "B"LT at Aux Vivres in Montreal :

Vege 'bacon': 'sliced' coconut, Braggs, maple syrup, liquid hickory smoke, smoked paprika, olive oil.
I usually add in beet powder for colour, but didn't have any so used red food colouring this time.
There are no measured amounts. I just 'freehand' this one.
The tricky part is the roasting. 300-325, constantly watched & stirred (edge of cookie sheet browns before the middle).

Will be trying this as soon as I find sliced coconut....
