A Guide to Vegan Bacon

Bacon. We live in a world that is obsessed with it. Its smoky and salty flavor can be addicting and it’s no wonder why bacon has a cult-like following. Being vegan doesn’t mean denying yourself of all those familiar taste-tingling flavors you love, so of course there are a plethora of vegan alternatives to bacon made from animals.

I’ve put together a vegan bacon guide to help point you in all the right, delicious directions. From tempeh bacon to coconut bacon to rice paper bacon, I’ve got it all. Because bacon doesn’t have to, and shouldn’t, come from an animal.

Shopping Guide

It used to be that you could only find vegan bacon in select all-natural grocery stores, but that’s no longer the case. Today, vegan bacon can be found alongside other plant-based meats in the refrigerated section of your local supermarket. There are a variety of flavors, styles, and brands to choose from.
