    Sharon123's Note:

    This easy recipe can be assembled the night before and prepared in the morning for a weekend breakfast or brunch. Great as a BLT. The tempeh strips can be left marinating in the fridge 2 to 3 days. Just be sure to eat the bacon as soon as it’s cooked—otherwise, it may lose its crispness. Adapted from Vegetarian Times(April 2008).

      Wow, this is good stuff! No more expensive, cardboardy store-bought veggie bacon for me! I made it to use in Pappardelle Alla Boscaiola, which turned out really great, and I had a ton of marinade left over to use for more bacon later. Thanks so much for sharing this yummy recipe!

      This made for the perfect "BLTs": (Vegan) Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Salsa tacos! ;) I added the smoked paprika with the marinade mixture, skipping the ancho chili powder and adding only 1 teaspoon of liquid smoke. Had to increase the temperature to 350º to make the strips crispier to my liking and ended up cooking the tempeh strips about 25 minutes total. Served with a choice of corn or flour tortillas, mixed greens including arugula and fresh locally made salsa. Reviewed for Veg Tag January.
