CRISPY RICE PAPER BACON
A while ago I was searching for another option idea for the vegan version of 'bacon' besides carrot. And hallelujah, I found one! Crispy 'bacon' made of rice paper, what a great idea!
Crunchy to the max, easy to make marinade and just perfect on burgers and grilled sandwiches.
Or eat them straight away once cooled down.
Seriously, I don’t think you will find any better recipe then this one.
Such a brilliant idea. Enjoy 🥓!
8-10 piece rice paper
2 tbsps flavourless oil
2 tbsps nutritional yeast
3 tbsps (gluten free) soy sauce
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp paprika powder
1/4 tsp chili pepper (optional)
extra needed: oven, baking trays, baking paper, mixing bowls, measuring spoons, freakinly sharp knife, 2 brushes serves: 25-30 pieces
Place 2-3 sheets on top of one another. Take a large, sharp knife and cut the rice paper into thick strips.
The rice paper might crack a bit, but the sharper the knife the less cracks.
Preheat the oven to 205℃/400℉.
Take two baking trays and prep with baking paper.
Grab a mixing bowl and whisk together all the ingredients except the rice paper. This will become your marinade.
Grab a second mixing bowl and fill 1/3 with water.
Take two strips rice paper, equally in length and shape, and lay them side by side.
Using a pastry brush, brush each sweet with water and stack them one on top of the other. They should start to stick together.
Brush water on all sides, flip the paper over to brush the other side.
Lay on a baking tray and repeat instructions until you run out of pieces.
Take another pastry brush, dry, and brush the marinade onto both sides of the rice paper.
Once again, repeat until you run out of pieces.
Bake crispy for about 6-8 minutes.
Watch closely since rice paper burns easily.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-4 weeks.
