I have not tried it, but I love the idea of a meat substitute. I wonder if other veggies could be used instead of eggplant with the soy sauce and liquid smoke. Please let us know if you try this recipe.

That looks awesome. Will try it. What is liquid smoke?

I've been cutting my eggplant harvests into french fry pieces, dipping them in egg/water/breadcrumb mixture, sticking in an oiled pan for five minutes and serving with marinara dip. Wife and I love it while watching Once Upon A Time.

I will be trying this for sure! I think I might eliminate the liquid smoke (not a fan) and smoke them myself on my smoker. I grill eggplant all the time with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and soy and love it when its nice and crispy! I would guess this has to be outstanding. Very Happy

We are just returning from the 13th annual Tasting Along the Wine Road Festival in Sonoma Valley, CA. When you sign up, you receive a lovely hard-bound cookbook containing recipes for the foods served at each winery to showcase their chosen wine. Portalupi Winery in Healdsburg served an innovative smoked lasagne based around smoked eggplant, a recipe created by Chef Sam Grobe. It was delicious! vegetarian, and something I shall be cooking this weekend. Chef Grobe smoked his eggplant slices over an oak fire for about 20 minutes, but I will substitute the eggplant bacon. The marinara sauce created by Chef Grobe was mostly traditional, but used 1/4 C Portalupi Barbera wine along with the tomatoes. Other ingredients for assembling the lasagne: smoked eggplant slices cut 1/3 inches wide, rosemary-infused olive oil, lasagne noodles, ricotta (16 oz.), Parmesan cheese, an egg, 9 oz. part skim mozzarella cheese, and an additional 2 Tablespoons Parmesan sprinkled on lasagne just before serving. Note in preface was: "The lasagne needs to chill in the refrigerator overnight before it's baked." From that, it would seem to be a great party dish to have on hand. The full recipe could probably be obtained from Portalupi Winery www.portalupiwine.com or 707.395.0960

One thing this reminds me of is tomato chips I make in our dehydrator. They are awesome too!

I just slice up some tomatoes nice and thin. Sprinkle with a lil bit of S&P. And dry till nice and crispy!

They are fantastic plain, or on a salad.

Post  southern gardener 11/15/2011, 4:09 pm

OK...so had an eggplant ready today, and made the eggplant bacon. I think " 🐷 bacon 🐷 " is sort of a stretch? Maybe eggplant chips? It was good, but I wouldn't kill over it lol. VERY salty, maybe cut the soy sauce in half, and add water? I also added some maple syrup, which I think made it better. Over all, I liked them, but didn't love them Shocked . But, still a good way to get eggplant in our diet. Anyone else try it yet? bounce

Eggplant Bacon?? Empty A little late but still good

Post  AranMC 1/11/2012, 6:03 pm

Zucchini can be used to make 'bacon' and any other summer squashes could be used too, it's all in the flavourings....

I tried it too and didn't think it resembled "bacon" very much, but it DOES make a good side dish.

Eggplant Bacon?? Empty Tamari

I like using Tamari instead of soy sauce. I don't know how that would affect this recipe, though.

Eggplant Bacon?? Empty Liquid Smoke

Post  Bluphrog 4/26/2012, 1:58 pm

Liquid smoke consists of smoke produced through the controlled burning of wood chips or sawdust, condensed into solids or liquids and then dissolved in water. This method is called destructive distillation. This solution can be modified to develop a wide range of smoke flavors See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liquid_smoke

I'm going to try cutting the eggplant into quarters lengthwise and slicing long strips, then dipping them into the liquid and dehydrating them. I'm hoping it will be similar to a faux jerky. Since I have a multi-tray dehydrator, I may try zucchini and summer squash, too.
