Vegan Alternative to MS Farms Breakfast Strips?
Is there a commercially available easy to prepare veggie breakfast strip out there? We like the MS Farms Breakfast strips but they have dairy in them :(
LightLife has Smart Bacon which I think is pretty good.
Or if you have the cookbook Vegan with a Vengeance, her tempeh bacon strips have gotten great reviews, although I have not tried them yet.
And there is something out there called Fakin' Bacon -- a tempeh product you'll find in the tofu section. I have not tried it either.
Smart Bacon from LiteLife is 100% better than MSF's 'bacon'!
Also you could possibly make your own using the tofu bacon recipe here that Shelly will link shortly. ;)
Tofurky makes a lot of good vegan sausages now -Kielbasa, Italian Sausage, and Bratwurts. They are VERY good. Possibly they make vegan breakfast sausgage or bacon?
Whole Foods market has tempeh bacon strips in the cold section with the other tofu/tempeh products...they are called "fakin bacon". Really good, and I don't even like tempeh! I used them on TLT's (tempeh, lettuce and tomato) with jalepeno jack soy cheese and some veganaise...my husband (an onmi) LOVED them...I did too. YUM. Vegan w/ a Vengeance cookbook also has a recip in it for homemade tempeh bacon.
Honestly I prefer to break out my grill pan (square frying pan with raised inner ridges). Pour in a generous amount of veg or canola oil and fry them up. That makes them taste most like what I recall bacon as. Of course these you have to be carefull about overcooking. So take them out when they look a few min from done. That way they won't harden up and break into dust when eating them.
I love the Smart Bacon. I cook with it in entrees but I also like it as a side to tofu scramble and home fries! mmmm I know what I want to make this weekend.
Smart Bacon makes really good BLTs too -- slathered with copious amounts of Vegenaise, of course!
