Vinsetta Garage's shiitake mushroom 'bacon' recipe

Vinsetta Garage has several items on the menu that are perfect for vegetarians and vegans. Since Vinsetta Garage is primarily a burger joint, though, they knew they had to have a killer veggie burger, too. 

Chef Vince Baker from Union Joints joined us on The Nine to show us how it's done. The veggie burger is even topped with "bacon" -- thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms. Chef Vince says "if you put 'em with the right stuff, it almost tastes like bacon."

You can watch in the video player above as he shows us how to prepare the shiitake bacon, and get his recipe here

The key is a perfectly thin slice, so they don't have to cook too long and will still come out crisp. 

You can use this crunchy "bacon" topping on your burgers or salads at home.
