Tofu Bacon Bits

I have tried making many different types of vegan bacon bit recipes that I found online over the years and I never really liked them because the spices were always off. So I started experimenting on my own and this is the recipe that my family likes.



Ingredients:

  • 1 pack extra firm tofu pressed

  • 1/2 cup water

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire (see recipe below if you can't find vegan Worcestershire at your grocery store)

  • 3 tsp. Liquid smoke

  • 1/2 T onion powder

  • 1/2 T garlic powder

  • 1/2 t smoked paprika


Directions:

  • Press tofu for two days or buy tofu that is already pressed. The dryer the tofu, the better.

  • Mix together all your marinade ingredients.

  • Crumble the pressed tofu, add to the marinade, stir, and place in the fridge for one hour or longer.

  • Strain the extra marinade out of the marinaded tofu. I use the back of my hand to press out as much marinade liquid as I can.

You can cook the tofu in one of two ways or a combination of both.

  1. Cook marinaded tofu in a skillet with a bit of oil until brown and the texture is to your liking.

  2. Spread tofu on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in the oven at 450 degrees for 10-20 mins stirring half way.



In most cases, non publicly traded food brands have accidentally vegan Worcestershire sauce. Check your stores brand. For example, if you have a Harris Teeter grocery store, their's is accidentally vegan.

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a pot, and cover. Turn the heat on low. Heat until it simmers.

  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

  • Store in a jar in the fridge for up to 1-2 months. Use your best judgment. Honesty I've had mine in the fridge for... going on 6 months and it gets better as it ages.
