By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes


1 pkg (5oz / 142g) yuba skins

2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or tamari

1 tbsp avocado oil (or neutral vegetable oil)

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 tbsp liquid smoke

1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp garlic powder

garlic mayo spread (makes about 1 cup)

1 C vegan mayonnaise

2 to 3 whole garlic cloves, minced

1 to 1½ tbsp lemon juice

sea salt & ground black pepper, to taste


8 slices sprouted grain bread, lightly toasted

1 C garlic mayo spread

2 to 3 large leaf lettuce or romaine leaves, broken into pieces

2 vine tomatoes, sliced

1 avocado, sliced

sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste

1 batch yuba bacon (recipe above)


1Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.

2In a shallow dish whisk together soy sauce or tamari, oil, maple syrup, liquid smoke, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika, and garlic powder until well combined.

3Remove the yuba from the package and unfold and separate the sheets. They should be thin. It's ok if two layer stick together in some cases. Tear the yuba skins into strips or pieces relatively similar in size. Place them in the marinade.

4Use your hands to coat all the yuba in the marinade. You can let it sit for 10 minutes or so. All the marinade will be absorbed.

5Arrange the pieces slightly spaced apart between the 2 baking sheets. Bake for about 15 minutes, checking half way through and flipping the pieces. If any smaller pieces are starting to look darker in color or are getting to crispy you can remove those pieces earlier.

6Remove the pieces from the baking sheets immediately onto a tray or into a container for storage. You don't want to bake the bacon until it's super crispy. You'll notice it's darker in color and has slightly crisp edges. It will dry a little more as it cools in some spots.

7To make the garlic mayo spread, add mayonnaise, minced garlic, lemon juice, sea salt, and ground black pepper to a jar or a bowl and stir together until well combined. This can be made ahead of time and will last quite a few days in the fridge.

8Add garlic mayo spread to one side of all slices of bread. Layer lettuce, tomato, avocado, sea salt and ground black pepper, and layers of yuba bacon on 4 of the slices and then top each sandwich with the other slice of bread and slice in half.
