There's nothing like the finding a vegan alternative to bacon! Now it's not exactly the same but it really satisfies that craving for crispy bacon. I've used tofu to recreate that bacon flavor using liquid smoke. Eat it plain, with a piece of of toast or on a sandwich like I did here.
Bacon Fried Tofu
makes ~4-6 servings
8oz. extra-firm tofu
2 Tb. coconut oil
1/4 tsp. smoked sea salt
2 Tb. tamari or soy sauce
1 tsp. liquid smoke
2 Tb. nutritional yeast
1. Drain tofu and press tofu between two kitchen towels, placing a heavy pan or book on top to release the extra moisture.
2. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
3. Thinly slice the tofu into ~1/8" thick pieces.
4. Cook tofu slices until crispy on one side, sprinkle with salt, then flip and cook the other side. Sprinkle with salt and add tamari, liquid smoke and nutritional yeast. Flip again ensuring both sides are coated with the additional ingredients. Place onto a paper towel to absorb excess oil and serve warm.
