How to Make the Best Vegan Bacon

In recent years, it’s become increasingly easy to get your bacon fix while eating a vegan or vegetarian diet. It’s all thanks to vegan bacon brands and their innovative plant-based creations.

1. Tofu Bacon

Take this tofu bacon recipe, for example. Once marinated and baked for 30 minutes, extra-firm tofu transforms into a delicious bacon substitute.

2. Coconut Bacon

Try sprinkling coconut bacon on top of stews, salads, and soups, like this vegan cream of asparagus soup. It also works well on top of avocado toast or tacos.

3. Tempeh Bacon

Not a fan of tofu? Make a batch of tempeh bacon. Not only does it have a wonderful meaty texture, but it’s high in plant-based protein too.

Simply use a mandolin to slice carrots into thin strips, then marinate in a soy sauce-based mixture. After just 20 minutes in the oven, you’ll have crispy carrot bacon.

5. Shiitake Mushroom Bacon

Try adding shiitake mushroom bacon to vegan breakfast burritos for a filling and delicious meal.
