Does Rice Paper Bacon Work?

You know those people who can describe food so pithily that their prose elegantly encapsulates the essence of the dish?

I can do that with rice paper bacon. Because as it turns out, you only need one word to describe the nuance of the recipe:


I'm not even kidding. This fake bacon is absolutely, without a doubt redonkulous. There's no better way to describe it.

Sure, plenty of other adjectives could apply.

It's simultaneously crispy and chewy.

It has a smack-you-in-the-face flavor.

It's delicious and delectable and awesome and all that.

Hell, it's even sizzley when you pull it out of the oven. No joke.

But none of those words can truly express the character of this bacon.

It's redonkulous.

Just look at it! It looks bacon-y! But it's just amalgamation of rice and water and magic.

Bonus points: It's hella cheap to make. The only thing I didn't have in my cabinets already was rice paper, and that's easy enough to find.

Get the recipe from Sweet Simple Vegan here: (and up your bake time if necessary--mine took about 14 minutes to reach optimal crispiness).

If you're in love with any other vegan bacon substitutes, be sure to tell me about them below. I'm always on the lookout for a new vegan nosh.
