This mock bacon is a meatless version of Bacon, based on tofu. You can also try it out in a smoky flavour if you can get your hands on liquid smoke. It's great for traditional dishes that require bacon, such as Christmas dinner or English breakfast.
1 (7.5 Oz) package smoked firm tofu, frozen and thawed, cut into strips shaped like bacon (Tempeh can substitute)
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp plain flour
1 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional for smoky bacon)
2 Tbsp tamari/low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp margarine
- Slice the thawed tofu into very thin slices (like bacon).
- In a medium bowl, stir together the yeast, flour, water, maple syrup, liquid smoke, soy sauce, onion powder and garlic powder.
- Place the tofu strips into the bowl to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
- Heat the margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Quickly fry the tofu strips until crisp, turning once, for about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.
