Learn more about Vegan Bacon
As mentioned earlier, there are a number of different plant based recipes for vegan bacon. Let’s take a look at these in a bit more detail.
Tempeh is essentially fermented soybean which has the ability to easily absorb the flavour from spices used when cooking with it. Tempeh can be cooked in small pieces for a crispy texture, or thicker strips for a more chewy experience. The ability to shape tempeh just how you want it makes it quite a versatile option when making vegan bacon.
A very easy way to make vegan bacon is to use coconut chips. Simply use unsweetened coconut flakes soaked or even drizzled with Tamari or soy sauce, liquid smoke and maple syrup then slide it in the oven until golden brown. The hard part is not eating the whole batch before they have even cooled!
Mushrooms are a great vegan and vegetarian alternative for bacon. You can either use the stalks or slice the tops into strips, marinate and eat. Even throw them in a dehydrator for use as an everyday snack – make your own vegan jerky!
Seitan is similar to tofu and tempeh however it is not made of soy, it is actually made from wheat, and more specifically gluten – so for those with gluten intolerances it’s best to avoid these types of vegan bacon.
Tofu bacon would be one of the more popular ways of making vegan bacon. Strips of tofu can be marinated in spices and liquid smoke and then fried.
