Vegan bacon bits

Today I felt like giving another go at a vegan bacon substitute. There are quite a few recipes available on the internet for this, such as this one and this one. My variation is most similar to the former link.

Vegan bacon bits:

¼ c
water
1 T soy sauce
5 drops liquid smoke (I purchased this from the Superstore)
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion salt
1 portion of firm tofu (I used a Miso tofu patty from the H&S), crumbled in to bits

Heat the liquids at a low temperature in a frying pan, and add the crumbled tofu pieces and spices once the liquids have begun to bubble. Heat the mixture until the liquid has evaporated and the tofu has become brown and crispy. This took me about 25 minutes as I had the stove on a very low setting.

The final result tasted fantastic, and was not too far off the last store-bought stuff I tried.

    I picked it up from either The Superstore or the Natural Food Pantry. Try the condiments aisle of your local grocery store, or try a health food store :-).
