Yeah, I said it! This bacon makes all other vegan bacon pale in comparison. I used to love bacon made from pigs, and even after I went vegetarian and then vegan I craved the heck out of it until I found this recipe on a vegan forum. I’ve altered it a little bit for superior awesomeness. This is awesome in BLT’s, with a scramble, or in a breakfast sammich. Seriously. So good.
Makes enough for 2 people to have 3 slices each
6 slices extra firm tofu (pressed, naturally) cut into six thin (1/8 inch) strips
2 Tbs wheat free tamari
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 Tbs canola oil
2 Tbs nutritional yeast
Fry the tofu strips in the oil on medium heat until they are crispy on both sides.
Take the pan off the heat and mix the tamari with the liquid smoke in a little cup or bowl. Let the pan cool a little more, and then pour the liquid smoke/tamari into the pan and stir the tofu so all sides are coated. Sprinkle the yeast over everything and stir some more, over heat, until the liquid is gone and the tofu is covered with sticky yeast.
Note that you can use super extra firm tofu without pressing if you want to cut down your cooking time.
