Rice Paper Bacon

This crunchy recipe is a delicious bacon substitute.

Rice Paper Bacon
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Soy sauce
2 tbsp Nutritional yeast
2 tsp Smoked paprika
1 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1/2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
5 Sheets spring roll rice paper wrappers

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Line two baking sheets with parchment.

In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, soy sauce, maple syrup, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper.

Cut all the rice paper wrappers into 1-inch wide strips.

Set up a bowl of room-temperature water. Put two rice paper strips of roughly the same size together. Dip them briefly in the water, which should cause them to lightly stick together.

Dip the doubled strip through the marinade and press with your fingers to remove any excess marinade. Dip through the marinade again, then place on a baking sheet.

Repeat with the remaining rice paper. Bake the strips until they are crispy around the edges, 8 to 10 minutes.
