Vegan Carrot 'Bacon'

Salty and sweetly smoky, this delicious, easy-to-make vegan carrot bacon is made from carrots and just five other store cupboard ingredients.


Ingredients




  • 1 large carrot

  • 1 tbsp tahini

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil (AKA canola)

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

  •  tsp all-purpose soy sauce (or tamari, or coconut aminos)

  • 1 tsp liquid smoke



Directions






  • Peel and top & tail the carrot, then slice very thinly.



  • Blitz the rest of the ingredients together for 20 seconds or so, until you have a thick marinade.



  • Place the carrot and marinade into a dish, mix together so that all of the carrot slices are coated, and set to one side for 30 minutes.



  • Heat your oven to 200°C/400°F



  • Place the carrot strips side-by-side on a cookie sheet (lined with a silicone baking mat or baking parchment if it’s not non-stick), spread a little of the remaining marinade evenly over the strips, and then bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on how crispy you want your ‘bacon’ to be.

    (see note)



  • Remove from the oven, and enjoy your delicious plant-based bacony treat!






Notes




  1. Not all ovens are created equal, so if you know that your oven runs hot or cool, do adjust the temperature and/or cooking time accordingly. Similarly, if you use a fan oven, it will need to be a few degrees cooler than the recipe states.
