So!  The vegan world has been all abuzz recently about this new invention – rice paper bacon.  I admit to having held a deep skepticism about how it might taste but I researched photos & recipes.  THIS ONE seemed the easiest & looked very good – so I tried it.  And OH MY GOD!  Really easy, as fast as real bacon & damned convincing!   A revelation!

Vegan Rice Paper Bacon


Rice paper sheets

2 TBS olive oil

3 TBS soy sauce (or tamari or liquid aminos)

6 TBS nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp liquid smoke

Cut the rice paper into strips.

Mix the remaining ingredients.  Get a bowl of water.

Heat a frying pan.  I sprayed mine with cooking spray.  Soak the 2 strips in the water a few seconds until they soften.  Squeeze excess water off the first one & dredge it through your smokey paste.  Stick the other strip to one side of the dredged slice to make it a double thick slice (single thickness is too fragile in the pan).  Dredge the thicker slice again & fry it 2 minutes or so on each side or until it starts to get crispy but before it burns.  Drain on paper towels.   Repeat.

Taste.  Lose your shit.

  1. Dear Christine – thank you so much for the nice words about our Laekon 🙂 We are SO happy that you chose our original Danish Laekon recipe and that you liked it 🙂 We really try to make our food as delicious and simple as possible, in the hope that it will appeal to non-vegans. Hopefully the realism of Laekon can help save some piggies by lowering the demand for bacon just a little ❤

    Having followed you in various roles over the years (and growing up with Beverly Hills) you've totally made our year with this post ❤ ❤ ❤

    All the best from Kasper & Karina
