Smoky Vegan Bacon!

We did this as a Facebook Live today with Rose from Peardrop London and it was revolutionary. I can’t tell you how good it tastes, Matt ate the whole tray as soon as he tried it! We’ve got loads of ideas for recipes using this, starting with Rose’s shredded sprout and cranberry salad with a cashew chestnut cream….


Difficulty: easy


Rice paper

2 tablespoons of olive oil

2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast

2 tablespoons of tamari

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder or finely chopped fresh garlic

1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup

1/4 teaspoon of smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon of liquid smoke, we got ours from Amazon


Pre-heat the oven to 200C

Line several large baking trays with parchment paper

Cut the rice paper into strips, about 2-3cm wide

Mix the dressing ingredients together in a bowl

Dip the rice paper strips into the marinade and cover, then place on the baking tray, ensuring each one has space to cook and crisp up

Roast for 3-4 minutes, keep a close eye on them as they want to crisp but not burn. Remove and let sit for a couple of minutes, they’ll crisp further during that time.
