How To Make Yummy Carrot 'Bacon'





Yield 2 servings

Salty and sweetly smoky, this delicious, easy-to-make vegan bacon substitute is made from carrots and just five other store cupboard ingredients.



  1. Peel and top & tail the carrot, then slice very thinly.
  2. Blitz the rest of the ingredients together for 20 seconds or so, until you have a thick marinade.
  3. Place the carrot and marinade into a dish, mix together so that all of the carrot slices are coated, and set to one side for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat your oven to 200°C/400°F
  5. Place the carrot strips side-by-side on cookie sheet (line it with parchment or a silicone mat if it’s not non-stick), spread a little of the remaining marinade evenly over the strips, and then bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on how crispy you want your ‘bacon’ to be. (see note)
  6. Remove from the oven, and enjoy your delicious animal-free bacony treat!


  1. Not all ovens are created equal, so if you know that your oven runs hot or cool, do adjust the temperature and/or cooking time accordingly. Similarly, if you use a fan oven, it will need to be a few degrees cooler than the recipe states.

Options for cutting the carrots finely:

  1. Y peeler
  2. Mandoline
  3. Food processor with slicing blade
  4. box grater
