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.

  • Cut the tofu into 4 thin slices.
  • 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.

  • Transfer your pressed tofu to the baking dish and allow the marinade to totally coat the tofu.
