I Love Me Some Vegan Bacon

There is a different kind of March Madness in the air and it doesn’t have anything to do with basketball. Here at Weal Food, March is Maple Syrup month. Here is a maple syrup moment:

Vegan Bacon
Ingredients:
*equal parts maple syrup, coconut aminos, grapeseed oil and water
a sprinkle of paprika
crushed garlic clove
a drop of liquid smoke
**1 package of tempeh

*1/8 cup for a half package or 1/4 cup for a full package
**package size is 250g and makes approximately 20 strips

Method:
Combine everything (except tempeh) and whisk together until oil permeates the other ingredients. Slice tempeh into strips and let bathe in liquid mix for 1-12 hours. Fry as you would ‘real’ bacon; drain on paper towel. Serve warm.
