Tip of Stefano:
Many people love smoked bacon. Here’s a vegetarian version made with seitan
Bacon is a favourite with many people. It is meat which comes from the sides, belly or back of pigs. It’s preserved by salting, drying or smoking. This process also gives the meat its flavour. In the US and Canada, many subcultures have been built around bacon, by people who simply can’t get enough of it. They create and swap books, videos and recipes. With seitan, you can make delicious smoked bacon which is both vegetarian and vegan. Liquid smoke can be used to give the seitan a smoked flavour, which means it will go perfectly with many other dishes. Use it in sandwiches, salads, tapas or appetisers or on the barbecue. Delicious and full of flavour.
