Bacon has a flavor and texture that many people miss when they transition to a plant-based diet. Over the years I have published several bacun recipes but I feel this recipe excels above the rest. It is prepared with a blend of wheat protein from gluten, soy protein from tofu and my own special blend of seasonings. This yields a finished product that is remarkably similar to real bacon in flavor, appearance and texture with a nice balance of salty, smoky and sweet. There are several steps to this recipe; however, don’t be intimated because it’s relatively easy to prepare when following the step-by-step directions and the results are well worth the effort.
