Bread (I like either Alvarado Street or Dave’s Killer)
14 oz Extra firm tofu, pressed
3 Tbs Soy sauce or Braggs
2 tsp Liquid smoke
1-2 tsp Maple syrup (I actually used agave, which was ok, but maple syrup would have been better)
~1/4 C Nutritional yeast
Canola oil for frying
Mix soy sauce, liquid smoke, maple syrup, and pepper together. Slice the tofu thinly lengthwise to make strips.
Oil your pan. When the oil is nice and hot (when you drop water into it it sizzles) add the tofu strips, making sure they don’t touch each other. Brown them on the bottom, moving around every so often so that they don’t stick. Once they are brown, flip them over and brown the other side. Once both sides are browned, pour liquid mixture over the top of each strip and then sprinkle nutritional yeast flakes over the top. Flip the strips and then sprinkle more nutritional yeast on the other side. After about thirty seconds, flip again to cook both sides. If you want them a bit more crispy, leave in the pan a bit longer.
Note: I did a couple of batches of tofu strips because they all didn’t fit in one pan. However, by the second batch the bottom of the pan was super sticky and hard to get anything off of. It you can, try and do all the strips in one go to avoid this.
