Famous chef Gordon Ramsay – known for his plethora of TV shows including Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares – has released an easy-to-make vegan crispy bacon recipe. This may come as a surprise to many, given Ramsay’s anti-vegan past comments. But clearly, he’s coming around to the light side!
In the video, Ramsay whisks together a mix of seasonings including garlic, yeast, paprika, maple syrup, soy sauce and cayenne pepper, as well as sriracha and vegan butter. He mixes this into a bowl of crumbled tofu. Following this, Ramsay cuts strips of rice paper that are dipped in a marinade of the above spices. Ramsay then adds tofu to the paper, adds paper on top of that and then mooshes them together. After baking them in the oven, the concoction comes out crispy, oily and looking and tasting similar to real bacon. Ramsay uses the bacon to make a vegan BLT.
