Vegan Pan-Fried Brussels Sprouts with Tofu Bacon

Vegan Pan-Fried Brussels Sprouts with Tofu Bacon

I’ve noticed that one of the most popular ways of preparing Brussels sprouts seems to be with bacon, so why not try a vegan version using tofu bacon?

The smokiness from the tofu bacon works so well with the Brussels sprouts. For this recipe, I used the same pan to firstly crisp up the tofu bacon bits and then pan-fry red onion and parboiled Brussels sprouts; this allowed the vegetables to take on more of the smoked paprika flavour for an all round full-flavoured vegan side dish.

Vegan Pan-Fried Brussels Sprouts with Tofu Bacon



  • 200g Brussels sprouts, cleaned
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 100g uncooked tofu bacon (for details and recipe link see notes above), cut into small 1cm cubes
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste (optional)

  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil, lower the heat slightly and add the sprouts to the pan. Boil for around 3-4 minutes until they have softened slightly. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, add one tablespoon of the olive oil to a frying pan. Heat over a medium high heat then add the cubes of marinated tofu. Cook for around 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cubes are crispy on all edges. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining olive oil to the same pan (no need to wash), then add in the red onion. Cook for around 3-4 minutes, stirring regularly, until it has begun to soften.
  4. Add the par-boiled Brussels sprouts to the pan with the onions and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Now add in the cubes of tofu bacon, mix well and cook for another minute or so.
  5. Season if desired and serve!
