Holy Shiitake! Mushroom Bacon!
Meet the recipe that rivals the real deal
Mmmmm…bacon. Whether it’s wrapped around eggs or in a BLT, we love it through and through. But what if you could replicate that deliciously crispy, smoky quality with--wait for it--shiitake mushrooms? Turns out, you can, and the results are kind of amazing. (See the full recipe over at the awesome vegan cooking blog, Olives For Dinner.)
All you need is a little salt, olive oil and paprika, plus a dash of liquid smoke. (Don’t panic. You can buy it on Amazon.) Bake for about 25 minutes and magic: mushroom bacon.
Vegetarians of the world, this is your cue to rejoice.
