Smoked Tofu

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.

Smoked Tofu
1 package Extra Firm Tofu
A mixture of the following seasonings:
Jerk Seasoning
Garlic Powder
Chili Powder
Cayenne Pepper
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.
