One thing I really miss as a vegan is a good blt sandwich. I have spent a lot of money on trying to find a tasty vegan bacon alternatives but I’ve hated everything so far. It was odd tasting.
So my mission became making the best homemade bacon there is. And I have. Let’s make some bacon!
The Best Tofu Bacon
1 block of tofu
Sweet Baby Ray’s
Imitation bacon bits
Drain and press tofu well. Slice tofu as thin as you can get it. In a skillet, Add tofu, with or without some sort of oil. I use vegan butter, but it’s fine plain. Load imitation bacon bits into a spice grinder. Spice tofu strips with salt, pepper and bacon bits, each side. Fry until golden and crisp.
Squeeze bbq sauce into a bowl and paint it on each side of the tofu strips.
Bake in an oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 mins, depending how crisp you like it. Eat as is with you favorite breakfast food or layer that baby on a tlt!
