Rice Paper Vegan Bacon (or Facon!)

Pre-vegan, bacon was a favourite of mine. I’m a big fan of salty foods and would really enjoy some bacon as a weekend treat. Since turning vegan, I’ve been surprised that I haven’t missed bacon! Even though its something I get asked a lot. Despite this, I decided to challenge myself and make a fake bacon (or facon) as an extra addition to homemade burgers and hot dogs.

Generously coat the double layered rice paper strips with the marinade. I like to do each one individually because sometimes the rice paper coated in the water can get stuck to the sheet if left too long.

Make sure to keep a close eye on the facon as it can easily catch and burn! Once they bubble and go brown they’re done. If they’re undercooked they will be quite chewy. Its a fine balance.

Serve this guilt-free facon with burgers, hot dogs, pancakes, waffles and whatever else you like!
