Tofu "Bacon"

I can't believe I haven't posted this yummy recipe yet. It makes awesome sandwiches. It's a little strong to eat by itself, though it's tasty that way too. If you want it less salty, you can cut back on the Braggs a little bit.

Slice in ⅛ inch slices:

1 pound extra-firm tofu, pressed as dry as possible

Arrange on baking sheets in a single layer and set aside. Mix the following ingredients for the marinade:

6 Tbsp. Braggs

2 Tbsp. Maple syrup

2 Tbsp. Yeast flakes

2 tsp. Oil

1 tsp. Liquid smoke flavoring

Lay tofu on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spoon marinade evenly over all tofu strips. (Optional: Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 24 hours to marinate.)

Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Bake 11 minutes. Turn over and bake 11 minutes on the second side. The “bacon” will crisp further as it cools.

The thinner you slice the tofu, the more it becomes crispy like bacon. But if you can’t get it that thinly sliced, it still tastes just as good!
