Introducing the Tofu bacon BLT

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.

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.
