Veganbungalow’s ‘bacon’ flavouring, courgette sandwich slices and tasty butterbeans

Bagel!

Courgette sandwich slices on bagels, yum!

Sometimes I really want something savoury, salty and smoky for sandwiches, salads and snacks. I won’t pretend this tastes at all like bacon, non vegans will not be fooled, but it’s an amazingly tasty flavour paste, that works on so many things. I’ve used it recently on courgette, which made a great sandwich slice, and today, butterbeans. I ate a few of them as a side to a burger, and they really hit the spot. Filling and savoury, with a lovely texture.

veganbungalow’s ‘bacon’ flavour paste:

1/2 tbsp oil, I used rapeseed

1 tbsp vegan broth powder
1 tsp tomato puree
1 tsp liquid smoke, I used hickory

Mix all the ingredients together.

The courgette sandwich slices:

1 medium courgette, sliced lengthwise to 3-5 mm
1 quantity of flavour paste

Preheat the oven to fan 180 c
Toss the courgette slices in the flavour paste. Lay them out on an oven tray lined with greaseproof paper, and bake for 15-20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.
Enough for 2 bagels.

The tasty butterbeans:

1 400g tin of butterbeans, rinsed and drained. It’s best to dry them a little using kitchen paper.
1 quantity of flavour paste
Salt and pepper.

Preheat the oven to fan 150 c
Toss the butterbeans in the flavour paste. Lay them out on an oven tray lined with greaseproof paper, and bake for 15 minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
