This vegan Eggplant Bacon recipe takes all the flavor and crispiness of bacon and packs it into thinly sliced eggplant!
2 Tbspsoy sauce30 mL, or tamari for GF option
1Tbsptoasted sesame oil15 mL
1Tbspolive oil15 mL
1tsp pure maple syrup5 mL
1tsplemon juice5 mL
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4tspvegan Worcestershire sauce
Prep: Preheat air fryer or oven to 300 degrees F (150 C). Cut eggplants into quarters lengthwise, then thinly slice into long strips resembling bacon (about 1/8 inch thick, a mandolin slicer makes this easier).
Flavor: In a small bowl, stir to combine all remaining ingredients. Liberally brush onto both sides of eggplant slices.
Cook: If air frying, place bacon in a single layer in your air frying pan and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until dry and browned. If baking, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until dry and browned.
