I have tried countless of vegan bacon recipes, but this one beats them all EASILY!

It’s pretty sick that you can make vegan bacon with something that most people tend to throw away.

A while ago I tried a vegan bacon with tofu and it was good, but nothing close to real bacon like this one.

For this recipe, you will need liquid smoke which gives it the smoke flavor of real bacon, without the liquid smoke you won’t have anything close to real bacon.

This recipe is a follow up to the vegan chicken legs I made recently using the WTF (wash the flour) method for making seitan.

Realistic Vegan Bacon Recipe

Difficulty: Advanced Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 40 min Total Time 50 mins Best Season: Suitable throughout the year


Super realistic vegan bacon, you won't find anything realer than this. It beats every vegan bacon I have tried, which are a lot ๐Ÿ˜.


Red batter

White batter


Off On

  1. Let the starch water left after the first wash of your flour sit for at least one hour, preferably 3.

    Once the water is divided, pour it all out and keep the concentrated starch water.

  2. Divide it into two pots equally, and start by making the red batter by adding:

    • Liquid smoke
    • Jamaica salt or regular salt and beetroot powder
    • Cornstarch
    • Smoked paprika
    • Garlic powder
    • Olive oil

    The white batter:

    • Cornstarch
    • Garlic powder
    • Liquid smoke
    • Olive oil
    • Salt

    Mix them well, and you can taste a bit of starch to see if you need to add more spices.

  3. Now in a fluid movement (refer to the video), pour your starch into a no stick pan with some oil.

    First the red batter, then the white. When we slice it, the bacon will look realistic, don't worry.

    Spread the batter out and let it cook until the top is dry, about 5 to 8 minutes.

    Flip it and let cook for another few minutes. Set aside and do this with all the rest of the dough.

  4. Slice the bacon into strips (see video).

  5. Now you can store them in the fridge up to 5 days, or you can freeze them.

    To consume just use them as you would regular bacon, fry them in the pan.
