Tofu Sandwich Slices<br><br>
Category: Sandiwches/Burgers<br><br><br><br>
Suitable for a: vegan diet<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Ingredients:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
1-pound block of extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed<br><br>
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast<br><br>
4 Tbsp low-sodium tamari, soy sauce, or Braggs Liquid Aminos<br><br>
1.5 - 2 tsp Liquid smoke<br><br>
2 Tbsp maple syrup<br><br>
Cooking spray<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Instructions:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
Heat oven to 325 F.<br><br><br><br>
After draining and pressing the tofu, carefully slice it through the width to form thin layer-shaped slices that will fit on a piece of bread. You should be able to get at least 8 thickish slices out of it, and maybe more thinner slices if you're good at slicing it.<br><br><br><br>
Spray a non-stick baking sheet with cooking spray and lay the slices out on it.<br><br><br><br>
In a small bowl, mix the nutritional yeast, tamari, and liquid smoke. It will form a fairly thick glaze. Brush this onto the tops of the tofu slices, then turn them over and brush the other side.<br><br><br><br>
Bake at 325 for about 40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. During the last 10 minutes, brush the slices with maple syrup.<br><br><br><br>
By the end of 40 minutes, you should see them turning noticeably brown and crispy, particularly in the thinner areas, and shriveling up a bit around the edges. They will not become completely bacon-like, though. If they still seem too pale and wobbly, you can bake them a bit longer, but if you bake them too long, you may have tofu jerky instead.<br><br><br><br>
Slap immediately onto sandwiches, or refrigerate and reheat in the microwave as needed.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

This is an adaptation of the Tofu Bacon recipe from <a href="http://www.Vegweb.com" target="_blank">www.Vegweb.com</a>.<br><br><br><br>
I got 8 slices out of my block of tofu, but I had already eaten one when I took this picture. It was nummy on a veggie sammie. Just the right amount of salty-sweet chewiness.

I think she Photoshopped the picture. God knows that's easier than cleaning <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
It does look yummy. Can you come to my house and do it for me? I'll give you a dollar.<br><br>

Haha, I wondered if I was going to catch flak for that. Seriously, it just happens that I did the first major cleaning on my stove in FAR too long (scrubbed drip pans, opened it up and cleaned underneath and all that jazz) a few days ago. And the pan is remarkably clean because (a) that's the heavy duty one we bought recently just for oven fries- our other pans are permanently grease-stained, and (b) I forgot to take the picture when I actually cooked them, so I got the finished slices out of the fridge and laid them out on the clean pan just for the picture! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> Under other circumstances it wouldn't have been nearly so Better Homes & Gardens. It's just like a cooking show where the host magically whips out the finished, perfect dish from under the counter! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/chef.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":chef:">
