Vegan shiitake bacon recipe

Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
  • 2 cups thinly sliced shiitake mushroom caps

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a Silpat on a baking sheet.
  2. In a shallow glass dish or bowl, whisk together the olive oil, salt, liquid smoke, sesame oil and smoked paprika, if using.
  3. Add in the sliced shiitakes and stir gently to combine. Marinate for 20 minutes to an hour.
  4. Place the shiitakes in a single layer on the Silpat. Bake for 10 minutes, flip, then bake for 15 minutes longer. Increase the heat to 375 degrees F, then bake for 10 minutes more. Flip one more time, then finish baking for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and place on paper towels to drain. As they drain, the edges will become crispy. Serve immediately.

NOTE

Baking times will differ based on your oven and the thickness and type of shiitakes you are using. During the last 20 minutes of baking, keep a close eye on them to ensure they don't burn.
