The recipe is incredibly simple as Brown demonstrates in the video.

“Do you see carrots or do you see bacon?” she asks as she holds up raw carrots.

 “I’m about to make carrot bacon uh huh.”

She begins by peeling a few strips using a potato peeler and says: “Now you’ve got a few strips, but if you want more than this, then do that because that’s your business.

In the next step, she prepares a marinade using simple everyday ingredients such as liquid smoke, maple syrup, paprika, black pepper and garlic powder.

“Mix this all up because this is your seasoning,” Brown comments as she swirls the mixture together.

 “And this is your concoction for your carrots to turn it into the bacon.”

After soaking the strips in the marinade, she cooks them in an air fryer at 380 degrees for five minutes.

 The result- tantalizing crunchy vegan bacon strips, which Brown displays as she takes them out of the fryer.

“Take it out and baby you got some bacon,” Brown says.

The video has gone viral on all social media platforms and followers are in love with this simple recipe.

“Congrats…This video is everywhere…geesh..lol,” commented actor Vincent M Ward.

“I’ve seen a lot of things in my life, but carrot ? bacon ? I’ve never seen. I might try,” wrote another user.

“Cousin what in the vegan voodoo is this!! ??? We are going to try this,” added a third.
