Tofu Bacon

Tofu Bacon PinThis Tofu Bacon recipe is simple to prepare but tastes just like bacon. It’s perfect for your Vegan BLT or as a side dish for your Vegan Pancakes.

Real bacon is loaded with saturated fat and cholesterol. It’s one of the worst types of meat that people eat, and has been linked to cancer, heart disease and other serious illnesses.

This Tofu Bacon tastes like bacon, but without the harmful ingredients (and cruelty). Bacon gets its distinctive flavor primarily from the liquid smoke that’s poured over it during the curing process. By using the same liquid smoke along with maple syrup in this recipe, you get the same flavor.  It’s really challenging not to eat the whole batch!

Instructions
  1. Drain and press the tofu for 10 minutes with a heavy pot.
  2. Slice tofu into 20 thin strips.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl to make the marinade. Stir to mix well.
  4. Place tofu into a sealable container and add the marinade. Make sure the tofu slices are completely coated.
  5. Seal the container (we used a glass baking dish and covered with plastic wrap) and place in the refrigerator for 4 hour or overnight.
  6. Cook tofu on an electric griddle or nonstick skillet over medium high heat, or bake in the oven at 400 degrees. Flip the bacon once the bottom starts to get brown and crispy.
