What is vegan bacon?
Vegan bacon is often made from a meat-alternative such as tempeh, or tofu. You can also use coconut meat, like this recipe for a more complex taste and smoother texture. Whatever alternative you choose to use is marinated in various spices.
Liquid smoke is often incorporated for that straight off the barbie smokey flavor we all love! If you prefer not to use liquid smoke, try chipotle powder.
