Try This—Tofu Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich with Homemade Sriracha

Ok. I admit it. I miss bacon. It’s been almost 25 years since I gave up eating meat and I’m perfectly fine with that…until I smell bacon. I’m not really into all of those imitation meat products. They’re usually so over processed that I end up feeling pretty weighed down after eating them…plus they DO NOT taste like bacon. Like seriously. Not even a little bit.

So recently I started searching the interwebz for a tofu bacon recipe. Once again the web came through. I found a recipe that I really liked. I did things a little bit differently from the original and I love the result. Just to be fair, nothing tastes like bacon except bacon, but this is a pretty delicious alternative. Give it a try!

Tofu Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich

***recipe derived from AmuseYourBouche

Ingredients
For the tofu bacon:
  • firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chipotle sauce (or homemade sriracha)
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • Black pepper
  • 1tbsp oil
  • bread
  • romaine lettuce
  • sliced tomato
 Directions
  1. Cut the tofu into 4 thin slices.
  2. Press the tofu – place the tofu in a single layer between two kitchen towels. Put a heavy cast iron skillet on top of the blanketed tofu. Let it stand for several minutes in order to press as much water out as possible.
  3. Combine the maple syrup, soy sauce, chipotle sauce, smoked paprika, and black pepper.
  4. Transfer your pressed tofu to the baking dish and allow the marinade to totally coat the tofu.
  5. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and add the marinated tofu. Pour over any leftover marinade. Cook over a medium heat for around 5 minutes each side, or until the tofu is firm and crispy.
  6. Assemble your Tofu BLT!
