Tofu Bacon

This is not really bacon....obviously!
It really is quite a delicious substitute.
Its very easy to make & super tasty.
It doesn't take too long & its very easy.

Heat a frying pan and add:
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 tablespoon molasses
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil (can be omitted for fat free but it does work better if you use it. Note it does still work out if you omit it, which is actually my preference to keep food oil-free)

Swirl these around in the pan until they just begin to bubble and have blended together well.
Slice some firm tofu (must be firm, not hard tofu as it will fall apart) into long thin strips.
Gently place the strips into the frying pan.
After about 3 minutes, gently turn the slices over. Check they are lightly golden brown.
After about another 2-3 mins the other side will be done.
Remove from the heat & serve as you desire.
They are also really tasty plain.
I especially love these chopped into small pieces & added to a salad with sauteed mushrooms & avocado.
