Easy Vegan Pork Rinds Recipe (under 5-mins!!)
Vegan Pork Rinds Recipe
Did the word munchies derive from the word crunchy and mood? I am not sure! But if that was the case, I have the perfect snack recipe that will put you in the greatest mood! I present to you, Vegan Pork Rinds. This recipe is inspired by the infamous Pork Grinds which are chips made from deep-fried pork skin. Although I do not support eating pigs, I am a fan of crispy snacks. So I veganized this recipe by using rice paper sheets and creating a smokey and delicious taste using different spices.
This simple recipe is a bowl full of delicious, crispy, and cruelty-free snacks. All you need for this recipe are pieces of rice paper, hot oil, and your favorite seasonings.
Alternative ways to make this recipe:
This recipe is amazing with any seasoning of your choice! My recommendations are cayenne, chili, light sugar, salt and pepper. You can even add a splash of lime to give it a nice zesty touch. How much spices you would like to put is up to you!

Fried Rice Paper Pork Rinds
Pork Rinds were set to be found back in the 1700’s in Mexico. After the introduction of pork by the Spaniards, the Mexican recreated their own version, the chicharron, it is still widely enjoyed as a cultural snack in Mexico today. This recipe is typically flavored with lime and chili powder or added to scrambled eggs to add extra crunch for breakfast.
However, being the Vegan chef inventor that I am, I had to recreate this puffy crunchy texture for all of us to enjoy! The best part is that the Vegan Pork Rind recipe caters to most dietary restrictions including kosher, halal, vegetarian or vegan. Now all of us can enjoy these snacks!
Using creativity and plant-based ingredients, We can make anything vegan.
