Vegan Bacon: How To Make Vegan Bacon Using Rice Paper Save Print Prep time 20 mins Cook time 7 mins Total time 27 mins This is by far the best vegan bacon out there. I have tried many different types and this is by far the crispiest, meatiest vegan bacon out there. Author: The Edgy Veg Recipe type: Vegan Cuisine: Vegan Serves: roughly 30 pieces Ingredients
8-10 pieces rice paper
4 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp garlic powder
4 Tbsp olive oil
6 Tbsp tamari (or soy sauce if you don't have tamari)
½ tsp liquid smoke (you can also sub 1 Tbsp bbq sauce if you do not have access to liquid smoke)
1Tbsp maple syrup
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp of Hungarian paprika
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Prepare 2 baking sheets with sheets of parchment paper.
In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the rice paper. This will become your marinade.
Place one sheet of rice paper over another (2ply), dip the rice paper into a bowl of water for just a moment to soften it slightly. Then with a pair of sharp scissors cut the rice paper into strips as thick as the average slice of bacon. This will soften the rice paper slightly and make it easier to cut without much fallout.
Now dip the doubled up pieces of rice paper into the marinate. Both side should now have marinade on them. Place on baking sheet.
Repeat technique with remaining rice paper strips until the baking sheet is filled, whisking the marinade every so often to prevent separation.
Bake for about 7 to 8 minutes, until crisp.
The strips burn easily, so keep an eye on the baking sheet and remove from sheet right away.
You can store leftover rice paper bacon in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the fridge for a few weeks.
Notes If you like softer, chewier bacon follow these preparation instructions instead. 1. Cut the recipe paper sheets into strips as instructed above. 2. Place sheets into the bowl of water until soft, remove from water and carefully lay one on top of each other on a cutting board. Removing excess water with fingers and allowing to dry for 2 minutes or until they have fused together. 3. Dip this strip directly into the marinade, and remove excess with fingers, and place on the baking sheet. 4. Bake as directed above.
It was worth the mess, 5 stars from the Hinkleys!
