The Best Vegan Bacon You'll Ever Try

January 30, 2017



What makes bacon irresistible?  To me, it's that perfect combination of salty, smokey, crunchy, chewy and sweet. 


I've tried a lot of vegan bacon (aka facon) over the years and nothing has quite come close to what I remember the original tasting like, EXCEPT this.  


It looks, smells and tastes like the original but is completely cruelty free and only a fraction of the calories.  (and no nasty fatty bits) 


This recipe has heightened my BLT game and makes about 30 delicious pieces of facon.  


- 10 pieces of rice paper (The same ones you use to make spring rolls!)
- 3 tbsp of soy sauce 

- 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast

- 2 tbsp of olive oil

- 1 tbsp water

- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup

- 1/2 tbsp garlic powder

- 1/4 tsp liquid smoke

- 1/4 tsp paprika 

- 1/4 tsp black pepper


1.  Whisk together the soy sauce, nutritional yeast, olive oil, water, maple syrup, garlic powder, liquid smoke, paprika and black pepper. 

2.  Place marinade in a wide shallow dish that you can easily dip the rice paper into.

3.  Use clean scissors or a sharp knife to cut similarly sized strips.  Cut all 10 pieces of rice paper.

4.  Place strips of rice paper into the marinade and let them soak for approx 1 minute.  

5.  Take the strips out before they get too soggy and lay on a greased baking sheet approx 1-2 cm apart. 

6.  Stack 2 strips on top of each other, press firmly so they stick together.  

7.  Bake at 400 degrees for 7-8 minutes, or until crispy. (keep an eye, they go from crispy to burnt real quick!)

8.  Let cool.  Store in a sealed container in the fridge for about a two weeks.
