Bacon lovers, you don’t have to miss bacon if you are just eating plant-based foods. It’s amazing how our Gift of Health community members come with different recipe ideas. Joanne Dunne Glassman introduced us to this recipe. Our friend Sylvia Smith made the rice paper bacon at one of our support group meetings and everyone at the support group meeting love it.
You can twist some pieces of the rice paper to give them more of an authentic look, but keep in mind that those parts will be less crispy and more soft and chewy, akin to less cooked bacon.
Pour a little balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Use a brush to dab a very light amount of the balsamic vinegar down the strips or just onto random places on the strips.
