I’ve been on a mission for the last year or so, and I’m happy to say I’ve finally met my goal. My tofu related goal. Everyone has tofu goals, right? I’ve been trying to recreate the BLT from my favorite (err, well, the only) local vegan restaurant, and I finally have the bacon down. Crispy, chewy, smokey — everything bacon needs. The BLT of my dreams actually has almond mayo, but I have no idea where to begin making that. (Send me recipes, please!)
How do you know this tofu is good? Josh loved it. Though he admitted he couldn’t be fooled into thinking it’s actual bacon (I mean, look at it), he proclaimed it delicious in it’s own right. In fact when I went into the kitchen later, I realized he had gobbled up the leftovers. Rude, right? I could’ve — and did!– have big plans for leftover bacon. Mainly that I was going to wolf it down myself.
I get that it’s a little time intensive, but it’s worth it. Make it on a lazy day when you’re parked on the couch watching Netflix. It’s a good excuse to get up and stretch every now and then, and it ends in bacon. Good day, right?
