Vegetarian Mushroom 'Bacon'
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 8 oz. small shiitake or portobello mushrooms
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1 tsp. gluten-free tamari
  • ½ tsp. liquid smoke flavoring
  • pinch salt or smoked salt
  • ¼ tsp. smoked paprika
  1. Clean mushrooms as necesssary (wiping with a cloth towel can work without getting them too soggy). For woody-stemmed mushrooms like shiitake, remove stems, saving them for another purpose like stock, use caps for the recipe. For larger mushrooms, slice caps.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl. It's not necessary to use all the smoke flavors (the last three ingredients) but use what you have.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the bowl and mix them into the dressing.
  4. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Spread out mushrooms on top.
  6. Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
