Spicy Jerky

What you need: 

1 package of extra firm tofu
1/4 cup Braggs
4 tablespoons liquid smoke
1/8 cup water
1 garlic clove, crushed then diced
1 tablespoon pepper
1 teaspoon cane sugar
crushed red pepper

What you do: 

Cut the tofu, once drained, into long narrow strips…around 1/4 of an inch. Whisk together Braggs, liquid smoke, water, garlic, pepper, sugar. Place strips of tofu in a sealable container and pour marinade over them. Marinate over night. Once marinated, place on a non stick cooking pan and sprinkle crushed red pepper on top on both sides.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees for 1hour to 1 hour 20 minutes. Turn over half way though. Cook until chewy looking.

Texture, flavor, and color was amazing.
What I will NOT be doing next time I make these: I will not pour more marinade onto the tofu before baking. It came out WAY WAY too salty. So as soon as the tofu is marinated over night, I'll just pop it in the oven.

It has a flavor very similar to tamari, shoyu or soy sauce and is ofter used inter-changeably with them.

Okay, so this was my first experimentation into tofu jerky.

The marinade was delicious. I drained the firm tofu, cut them into strips, then marinated the tofu overnight. I put it in the oven on a non-stick pizza pan. I put a spoonful of marinade onto each tofu strip before putting them in the oven. The lowest setting on my oven was 170 degrees. I left the oven cracked open so moisture would escape. I turned over the tofu evey hour for 6 hours.
