Vegan Tofu Bacon

...I was thrilled to get these goodies...at my regular little small town grocery...so YAY!...

...I know you probably don't understand my excitement...but goodies like this usually only come from a trip to Grand Forks - 90 miles away...so I'm hoping that there is enough of a market here for organic tofu and veggies that the grocery store will continue to stock them...

...so I just sliced up some tofu and brushed it with a little bit of liquid smoke...

...and just sautéed it in a little bit of oil until golden brown...then sprinkled on some soy sauce...

...so that I could make one of my favorite sammies ever...a V.L.T.

...that's Vegan Tofu Bacon...Lettuce...and Tomato...

...so very delicious...

...a Perfect Monday (or anyday) Lunch...

  3. Yay! I know your excitement, when I lived with my parents in a small town in Northern Minnesota it was a huge deal when the local grocery store started carrying tofu :)

  4. Hey, I just found a driving distance calculator for my city to Grand Forks (I assume you meant the one in BC) and it's 127 miles away, so that means we're only 217 miles away from each other!!!
    Funny that you should have to drive to Canada for your nearest health foods. :o)
    Sandwich looks very tasty.

  10. @VeganCraftasticThanks Kala! They do carry the silken time - I guess because of the longer shelf life - but I'm thrilled with the firm tofu and hope they continue to carry it!...

  13. @KarenOh how I wish I could! We'll still be eating grocery store tomatoes in June too - so you'll have to bring some homegrown ones....

  14. That looks rather yummy. I am intrigued by 'liquid smoke'. Do you make this yourself or can you buy it? Jacinta

  15. I have to try this! Funnily enough I bought some liquid smoke the other day thinking that it might come in useful for something. Thank you again for a wonderful recipe.
