There is a reason bacon is called “The gateway meat”, it’s that damn good. So of course I would have to find a plant based replacement for this……well I think I have found one, and it stars our umami pals….MUSHROOMS! I was reading a science article, and this food scientist guy was talking about making mushrooms taste like bacon, he had quick and easy way to make them, he used shitake, but I got some amazing locally foraged trumpet mushrooms so I used those, and I tell ya, I don’t care you if eat meat, don’t eat it, like to wear a furry suit….if you like the taste and texture of bacon you will love these!
½ lb. Wild mushrooms, sliced thin
2 tsp. cooking oil, I’m currently in love with Camelina oil, high in omega 3’s, super high smoke point. Soooo sexy! Haha
2 tsp. bragg’s liquid aminos, or soy
Heat oven to 350 degrees, toss mushrooms with oil and bragg’s until coated, place on a parchment lined baking sheet, cook one hour, turn half way through. Use however you would use bacon, I made a classic B.L.T. pretty sure everyone knows the ingredient list for those, lettuce, tomato, bread, you know the drill. Trust me this will blow everyone’s mind. You’re welcome.
