- Tofu, in any amount, sliced in ¼ inch thick slices
- Soy sauce or tamari
- Spread a thin layer of tamari or soy sauce all over a platter or any flat pan with edges.
- Arrange the tofu slices in a single layer on the pan.
- Sprinkle or spread more tamari or soy sauce on top of the tofu. The aim is to cover all the tofu with the tamari or soy sauce, but not have a lot of extra left in the pan
- Let the tofu marinate for 5 minutes or longer
- Turn each slice over and marinate another 5 minutes
- Fry the tofu slices in a frypan with a little vegetable oil on medium heat. Flip them when they’re golden brown, and brown the other side.
- Serve them any way you might use bacon!
