If there’s one thing people talk about a lot when they first give up meat, it’s just how much they miss bacon. That salty deliciousness is almost ingrained into our very being, so doing without it can be tough – especially when we first go plant-based.

However, we all know that the slaughter of millions of wonderful piggies is simply unacceptable, so we seek out alternatives.

The thing is, store-bought vegan bacon isn’t exactly the tastiest fare in the world and when you look at the ingredients list…well!

Thankfully, there is another way.

10 Powerful Statements By Vegan Mothers On Why They Said NO To Dairy

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 cup dried  small red beans
  • 1/3 cup whole grain buckwheat groats (not buckwheat flour)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/3 tsp rubbed sage
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1-1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke*
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1-1/2 tbsp coconut aminos (if no need to be soy-free, sub bragg’s, tamari, or soy sauce)
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1-1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (may sub any oil you prefer)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preparation :

Rinse the beans and buckwheat, place in large bowl covered with several inches of cold filtered water; let soak overnight.Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.Drain and rinse the soaked beans and buckwheat.  Place in the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade, along with all of the other ingredients. Pulse several times to combine, scrape down the sides and bottom of bowl and continue pulsing until uniform, but not completely pureed. Line a 9 x 13 casserole dish or rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. Place bacon batter in pan and spread evenly with a spatula. You may choose to spray another piece of parchment paper lightly with baking spray and press the paper on top of the mixture and flatten with your hands. Remove and discard the top piece of parchment paper, then use a spatula to spread over and fill in any bare spots. Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Slice into 24-32 strips, whatever size you prefer, I cut mine into 1 inch by 4 inches slices  At this point freeze any strips your don’t plan on eating immediately. Frozen strips can go straight into the skillet at a later date, no need to thaw first. To fry, heat a skillet with a small amount of oil and fry both sides to desired level of crispiness. You may also choose to fry slices in cooking spray, for a less crispy, but still very delicious result.
