Vegan Pepperoni

Vegan Pepperoni

Beets, vinegar, mustard, and spices combine to create a tasty alternative to pepperoni. Chop up and toss it into your next dish of vegan Pasta Carbonara or pizza.

After all the liquid was absorbed, the slices were laid out flat on a cookie sheet and frozen for later use.
These have a great taste!
Makes about 35 pepperoni slices

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
1/3 cup vegetable broth
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried fennel
1/8 teaspoon dried sage
1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 small beets, peeled and thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9-inch square glass pan.

In pan, combine all ingredients except for beets. Add beet slices and toss to coat. Spread into a thin layer.

Bake, uncovered, for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and flip slices over, stirring them around slightly. 

Continue baking and stirring every 10 to 15 minutes until liquid is absorbed and slices begin to crisp and curl up at edges. Remove from oven and serve warm or store in refrigerator up to 4 days.

Note form RB: if you don't like a heavy liquid smoke taste, use less liquid smoke. The 1/4 teaspoon was a bit too much for me.

Enjoy! from the Beegan Vegan, Rbudladi
