This is a really tasty recipe for Tofu Bacon. William loves it when we get to make BLTs so I tried this new recipe for him. I have done Tempeh bacon before which is delicious, but I think I like this one better...

Tofu Bacon


Ingredients:
1 package Extra Firm Tofu
1/2 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Tamari or Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Ketchup
1 Tbsp Liquid Smoke

Oil for Frying

Directions:
*Pat the Tofu dry and shave it into long thin slices with a cheese slicer
*Mix All ingredients except oil in a shallow container.
*Carefully add tofu slices to marinade making sure all pieces are covered.
*Marinade for 8 hours--up to 2 days




*Heat a large non-stick skillet over high heat.
*Add about 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the skilled and swirl to cover bottom of pan
*Add slices, do not overlap. May take a few batches to finish.
*Cook until golden brown and a little crispy.



*Place on a plate covered by a paper towel to cool and drain oil.

Liquid smoke is amazing. It adds a smokey flavor to anything you put it on. It can be found at almost any grocery store in the condiment aisle. It's usually near the hot sauce/bbq sauces and ketchup.

No problem. It's also really cheap. Most prices are around $1 something. Usually that's for the 4 oz bottles but a 1-2 tbsp of the stuff goes a long way.

How imperative is the ketchup in this recipe?

Did you write the book of love, and do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock Ân roll,
Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

I promise, no tomatoes were harmed during this post.


While the ketchup might not be necessary, because of its slight vinegar content, it gives the marinade a "zing" that is needed.

Glad ya'll enjoy

I may have to try this one of these days.

Made me actually laugh....

I've never had a veggie BLT (Heck I don't think I've ever had any BLT), so may just try this some time!
