Better than Bacon

Another great flavor that we make BLT's out of, also from "Cooking with
PETA" is this bacon substitute.

1/2 cup soy sauce (low-sodium if available)
1 Tbs Nutritional yeast flakes
1 Tbs Maple syrup
1/2 Tbs Liquid Smoke
1/2 lb extra-firm regular tofu

Mix the soy sauce, yeast flakes, maple syrup and the liquid smoke together
in a shallow, flat container.  With a cheese slicer, shave the tofu into
thin slices.  Marinate in the mixture for 1 day or longer.
To cook, heat a non-stick griddle over medium-high heat.  When hot, fry the
tofu slices until they are golden brown and almost crispy on both sides,
scraping underneath the slices as you turn them with a sturdy spatula.
Turn several times during cooking and cool on the griddle( it will crisp as
it cooks).
I don't use the boxed tofu for this as it doesn't hold together well in the
marinade and you end up with small pieces, which can be used on salads.  We
have a local natural food co-op that makes there own tofu and I find that I
like to use theres as it is sturdier.
