Why do vegans actually want to eat “bacon” too? Whole simple answer: Because it tastes damn good! It’s actually mostly about the gigantically delicious smoky flavor and the salty that makes up the bacon. I really like this version, especially with a Pasta with Cashew Alfredo the ultimate vegan burger with Geling guarantee, the Shawarma Scrambled Tofu or simply as a topping over a delicious Salad . I would say, here we go, right?

By the way, liquid smoke is harmless and is classified as food. I did some research because I was a little unsure myself at the beginning. The smoke is produced under laboratory conditions and consists of a condensate produced when heating wood. I’ll spare you the more detailed manufacturing process, however, here are a few notes on the use and storage of liquid smoke:
- Less is more: Better to test first with less smoke flavor and then add more, as it is very intense.
- Once opened, store in a cool place, preferably in the refrigerator.
- Never use pure, but always in a mixture such as a marinade or sauce.
