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.
