Instructions
Preparing the Tofu:
  1. To begin, start by draining the tofu. Squeeze the tofu and rid it of as much water as you can with your hands with little pressure. Next, wrap the tofu in a dish towel and then place a heavy dinner plate on top as a press. Let it press a good 15-20 minutes before using the tofu in this recipe.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400F and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper and set it aside.
  3. Next, you want to cut the tofu block into 8 thin slices {this is enough for 2 servings-you could double the recipe if needed}. Be careful to not cut them too thin because they will crumble and break apart. You want them just thick enough that they hold together.
  4. Arrange the slices on the prepared baking sheet and set aside.
Preparing the Marinade:
  1. Now, it’s time to make the marinade. In a small dish add the liquid aminos, maple syrup, tomato paste and liquid smoke. Whisk the ingredients together thoroughly.
  2. Rub the marinade on the tofu slices. Don’t soak them because you don’t want mush but be sure to coat them evenly all the way around.
Baking the Tofu:
  1. Add the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 10 minutes at 400F. Once the 10 minutes is up, remove the pan, flip the tofu and rub marinade on top again. Put the pan back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on them towards the end. You don’t want them to burn. Once you remove the pan. Let the tofacon cool off.
  2. Once the tofu bacon is cool, assemble your wrap. I added my Vegan Creamy Tzatziki Sauce, or you could keep it original and top it with either the Vegan Mayonnaise or my Vegan Mayonnaise {No-Oil} , romaine lettuce, tomatoes and slices of avocado. Serve immediately and Enjoy!
