There are many tasty and convenient vegan bacon alternatives you can buy at the store. However, nothing beats the satisfaction (and rich flavor) of making your own homemade bacon. In this particular recipe, portobello mushrooms are sliced, marinated in a savory tamari-maple mixture, and topped with a sprinkle of smoked paprika and pepper. The result is a deliciously smoky and umami bacon that is perfect for BLTs, topping salads, and stacking on burgers.

Crispy Chewy Portobello Bacon [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 1 Portobello mushroom, stump and gills removed, and sliced into 1/8-inch thin slices
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2-3 teaspoons maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • A few pinches of cracked black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place mushroom strips in a shallow dish. Add the marinade ingredients to a jar with a lid and shake to combine. Pour over the sliced mushrooms and tilt the dish to distribute the marinade over all the strips. Marinate for 15 minutes or up to a few hours if you have time.
  3. Place the strip on the prepared pan, leaving a little room between each one. Sprinkle on a little extra pepper, if desired. Bake for 15 minutes, flip carefully, and continue baking for about 5 more minutes. Remove from oven and let sit on pan while you prepare the sandwiches.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!

Don't call anything you want 'portobello'. There's no 'portobello bacon' in Portobello.
