Rice Paper Bacon

Rice Paper Bacon

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.
