Rice Paper Bacon


60g/2oz rice paper
1 ½ tsp. miso paste
30ml/1fl oz sesame oil
30ml/1fl oz light sodium soy sauce (gluten free optional)
1 tsp. liquid smoke
2 tsp. maple syrup
½ tsp. paprika
½ tsp. black pepper


Whisk all ingredients except for the rice paper in a bowl. Set aside.
Stack 2 pieces of rice paper and hydrate in a bowl of cold water until slightly soft and pliable.
Cut the hydrated rice paper into strips using a pizza wheel.
Dip each strip in the soy mixture.
Lay a sheet of parchment paper directly over your oven grill.
Lay seasoned rice paper strips on the wax paper.
Bake for 6-8 minutes at 205C/400F.


Aaaah, facon (or fake bacon). Some are hit-and-miss, but because bacon is the one thing most people miss when switching to a vegetarian or vegan way-of-life, it’s expected a fitting alternative is created. The others you may have attempted can trot along, because here is a recipe that not only offers a completely meat-free bacon, but one that is low in fat and overall calories. To mimic the intoxicating aroma that we have come to love in the real thing, we used a combination of liquid smoke and paprika to achieve similar results cleverly using rice paper. While it takes a little longer, the efforts will be worth it – and your hips will thank you. And, so will Peppa.
