Vegan Bacon Bits
A simple way to make vegan bacon for toppings on potatoes, salads, anything you desire to put it on.
- 2 Tbs Tamari sauce
- 1 Tbs Maple Syrup
- 1 Tbs Hot Sauce
- 1/2 tsp Smoked paprika
- Black Pepper
- 1 pkg Super Firm Tofu Extra firm will work too, cook longer
- 1 Tbs Garlic Infused Oil
Warm garlic oil in large pan.
Once pan is warm, crumble the entire package of tofu into tiny crumbles. The smaller you can get them, the quicker they will cook.
Add tamari, maple syrup, hot sauce, smoked paprika, and pepper.
Stir until all seasonings and sauces together and let the tofu cook the liquid out.
Stir frequently so it does not burn. When it reaches the desired crumbly and dried out texture, it is done.
Pour tofu bacon bits onto a paper towel to finish cooling. Once cooled they are ready to use as your "bacon" topping.
