When it comes to jerky, it’s all about the texture and flavor quality – regardless of what the “meat” is. In this case, it’s coconut! Marinated in a smoky, salty and tangy sauce, this coconut jerky is dehydrated to reach the perfect consistency and taste profile.
This recipe works well with both thick coconut meat and thinner (or younger) coconut meat from the Thai variety. You can also buy frozen coconut meat if you prefer not to bother with cracking one open.
Feel free to serve this vegan jerky shredded on top of salads, in wraps and sandwiches, or just eat it on its own!

Use knife to cut coconut meat into long, thin strips.
Soak strips in marinade for 2 hours or overnight.
Arrange marinated strips on dehydrator sheet and dehydrate 12 hours.
