If there is any one food product that is the bane of the vegan existence, it's bacon. If the vegans are ever going to be taken seriously, we must find a good substitute for bacon.
I aimed to conquer this dastardly devil, with my own with Vegan Bacon!!!
Step 1: Ingredients
3 tsp of soy sauce (Bragg's is prefered)
1/3 c apple cider vinegar
1 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
1 pkg tempeh
and oil for frying
Step 2: Chop the Tempeh
Step 3: Prep the Marinade
Step 4: Marinate the Tempeh
Step 5: Fry the Tempeh
After you are done frying, blot with a paper towel to remove excess oil
Step 6: Enjoy!
Now you can use this vegan bacon in all kinds of dishes, like vegan BLTs or with breakfast with some good ol' tofu scramble.
I ate mine straight and it was pretty good. It certainly doesn't taste like bacon, but it satisfies that craving for fried oily things.
Please show off your vegan dishes with veggie bacon in the comments!
