Gochujang Carrot Bacon

The most delightful carrot bacon is made with just gochujang, soy sauce, and oil. Some may say its 24 carrot magic.


4 carrots, peeled and trimmed 
2 tbsp ORIGINAL Gochujang Paste 
1 tsp soy sauce 
2 tbsp vegetable oil or other neutral-tasting oil 

For the Assembly

1. Preheat oven to 300F. Place a baking rack lined with parchment paper on top of a baking sheet. 

2. Using a Y-peeler or mandolin, peel the carrots into strips lengthwise. 

3. In a medium bowl, mix together the gochujang, soy sauce, and oil until well combined. Add the carrots to the mixture and toss until well coated. Let sit for 10 minutes at room temperature to allow the marinade to absorb. 

4. Lay the marinated carrot slices onto the rack topped baking sheet. Transfer to preheated oven and bake 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through. Keep an eye on the carrot bacon to make sure that it is crisp, but not burned.
