Homemade Tofu "Bacon"

Another fake meat experiment with tofu that turned out really well. You can skip the food colouring of course, though the smoked salt does tend to give the tofu an unattractive grey look without it.

You Will Need:

1 pound extra firm tofu cut into fourths and pressed dry under weights for 30 minutes.
5 tablespoons corn oil
1 teaspoon smoked salt
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Golden Syrup
Red Food Colouring

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place tofu in an 8x8 pan. Pour over remaining ingredients well combined. Turn tofu once to coat. Bake 30 minutes on each side. Tofu should be firm, but not hard with just the slightest char at the edges. Remove to a plate and cool. Store tightly wrapped in fridge. I sliced it thin to use on BLT sandwiches on buttermilk white bread.
