This is an all-time favorite of every kid and teen that has ever been to our house – in other words, it’s tried and true. Even non-vegetarians love it. BLTs are a natural with these, but don’t forget that they make a great addition to salads, quiches (yes, think quiche lorraine!), and as a topping for soups.
8 oz pre-pressed or firm tofu
1 T oil plus non-fat cooking spray
3 T nutritional yeast flakes
2 T soy sauce
1t liquid smoke
Slice tofu into 1/8” pieces about the width of bacon. Heat the oil in a skillet preferably non-stick and cook tofu slices over medium –low flame until golden brown and crispy on one side. Flip and cook the other side until browned.
The tofu should be very brown and crispy. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast, then add the soy sauce and liquid smoke, and stir quickly to coat the tofu slices evenly
Cook for another moment and then serve.
