The Best Vegan Bacon You'll Ever Try

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. Ingredients:

- 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.
