Tofu bacon BLT by Miyoko Schinner    Courtesy of the Booking Publishing Company ©2001 from The New Now and Zen Epicure. Watch this recipe being made on Delicious TV’s Vegan Mashup.

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.

Unfortunately, every time I use liquid smoke, I end up with a migraine. Has anyone tried this recipe using a smoker instead of liquid smoke? Or using smoked salt (not smoke-flavored salt) in place of the soy sauce and liquid smoke? Thanks!

I just made this, and OMG - it is incredible! It is really a great substitute for bacon. My only caveats: use a really sharp chef's knife to cut the thinnest slices of tofu, and use a little less soy sauce and a little more liquid smoke than the recipe lists.

Thank you so much for such a great recipe.

I never would have believe that tofu could be C-R-I-S-P.  What a incredibly delicious substitute for bacon. Thanks so much for your creativity!  I am totally WOW'ed.

I don't like liquid smoke, so I just made it without it. Tasted DELICIOUS - and sure enough, my kids loved it too. In fact, one of them is a about to make it himself. :-)
