This vegan Tofu Bacon adds so much beautiful texture and zesty flavor to just about any sandwich, salad, pasta dish, or wrap.  It is so good!  Complimenting so many dishes, you can slice the Tofu Bacon into thinner strips, chop it, crumble it or use it whole.  Feel free to get creative!

No need to spend time pressing out the moisture in the tofu or taking time to marinate.  We do it all in one go in the oven.  As the tofu bakes, it soaks up the flavor of the marinade and the excess moisture evaporates.

Frying the tofu just before serving brings out the spices and creates a succulent texture, crisp on the outside and tender in the center.
