Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2
  • 2 rice paper sheets
  • For the marinade:
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp tamari sauce (if GF) or low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp liquid smoke
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • dash of black pepper
  • ⅛ cup warm water
  • For the sandwich:
  • bread (gluten-free if needed)
  • cashew cheese
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  1. Take two rice paper sheets, lay them above each other and cut into strips with a kitchen scissor.
  2. For the marinade, add all the ingredients together in a small bowl and mix well.
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and pre heat the oven to 200°C / 400F.
  4. Prepare a bowl with warm water and place it next to the bowl with the marinade.
  5. Take two strips of rice paper, press them onto each other and dip into the warm water until it becomes slightly soft. Next, dip the double strip into the marinade and place onto the baking tray.
  6. Repeat this process until all strips are gone.
  7. Place the baking tray in the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes. The baking time might vary, depending on your oven (for me it took about 15 minutes to get really crispy).
  8. Make sure to check the strips regularly as they burn very quickly.
  9. Once done, take them off the baking tray and let them cool down.
  10. Prepare your sandwich, by adding the cashew cream cheese, lettuce, tomato and rice paper bacon, and enjoy!
