15 Crispy, Chewy, Smoky Plant-Based Bacon Recipes
Goji Berry, Chief Happiness Officer, One Green Planet
They say “everything is better with bacon” but have you ever wondered if that’s really true? Bacon adds savory, umami, and smoky flavors to our dishes, so it’s no wonder why it shows up in everything from sandwiches to the top of an ice cream sundae. If you’re looking to try more plant-based foods, you might be worried that that means giving up bacon for good. Well, we love to be the bearer of good news: you don’t have to.
Even when eating plant-based, you can still have “bacon” — but make it veggie bacon. There are so many ways to make bacon out of plants; after all, all we need is a similar crispy-chewy texture and the familiar smoky flavor. Plant-based bacon can be made out of tempeh, tofu, coconut, eggplant, mushrooms, and even beets. We can make bacon out of so many different plants, it’s tough picking out what kind to try first. Pro-tip: they all taste amazing.
