Smokey Maple Tofu Bacon

  • Prep Time 10m
  • Cook Time 20m
  • Servings 2


  •  1 block firm tofu (about 280 g)
  •  1 Tbsp soy sauce
  •  2 Tbsp maple syrup
  •  1 heaping Tbsp smoked paprika
  •  Pinch cayenne, optional
  •  2 tsp oil, optional


  • Drain the tofu and cut into 1-centimetre-thick slices. Place between sheets of kitchen paper and press down gently to squeeze out most of the water.
  • Stir together the soy sauce, maple syrup, paprika, and cayenne, if using.
  • Spread the tofu slices in a single layer or on a baking tray, pour the marinade over them, and let marinate overnight, or for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 200°C.
  • Line another baking tray with parchment paper (or with a silicone mat, if omitting the oil).
  • Place the marinated tofu on the tray and drizzle with the oil, if using.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.
