Fake bacon and a BLT!

Since I gave up meat several months ago, I have missed BLTs.  I found a recipe for making fake bacon out of rice paper and had to try it.  It was like an edible science experiment! 
 This is rice paper. It feels like a thin plastic frisbee. You would never think it's edible.
Start by dipping two rice papers into water and fusing them together.  Then coat them with the marinade (which includes, soy sauce, oil, nutritional yeast, pepper, paprika, liquid smoke, maple syrup) and cut them into strips.
 Bake them for a few minutes, until they get crisp.
 Bacon!  No, it doesn't taste exactly like pig bacon, but it's good enough.  Way healthier for humans and pigs.
BLT.  It was satisfying.
