One cooking technique Tim and I really enjoyed before changing to a plant based diet was smoked foods. We had a charcoal smoker and used to make smoked ribs, smoked salmon, smoked chicken. The slow low temperature cooking with a variety of rubs and BBQ sauces was fantastic. After determining the health benefits of a plant based diet are so important to us, we still want to enjoy the flavors and seasonings we have in the past. I went out and found a small electric smoker - just the right size for smoking Tofu.
We still use the charcoal smoker to make food for cookouts for our friends and family.
1 package Extra Firm Tofu
A mixture of the following seasonings:
Fresh ground Black Pepper
Amounts and ratio depends on your tastes and how spicy you would like your tofu.
Slice Tofu into thin slices - approximately 1/4 inch thick. Dredge in seasoning mixture.
Place in smoker for approximately 1 1/2 hours.
Once the smoking process is complete, place the tofu slices into a preheated 350 F oven and bake for 20 minutes until slightly crispy.
Brush on or dip into your favorite BBQ Sauce.
