Vegan Bac'un Bits

What you need: 

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/4 cup soy sauce
4 teaspoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
8 ounces extra or super-firm tofu, cut into 1/4" cubes (preferably super firm)

What you do: 

1. Mix 1 tablespoon of the olive oil with remaining ingredients to make a bacon marinade.
2. Add marinade to the tofu cubes and let sit refrigerated for about 1 day. Stir the cubes intermittently to allow them to be evenly coated in the marinade
3. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a skillet and heat over medium-high heat, add the marinaded tofu cubes.
4. Cook for about 10-15 minutes, until the tofu cubes are crispy and brown. The marinade will evaporate, coating the skillet and the tofu will dehydrate. It's okay if the cubes break up a little bit, it gives them a more bacon-bit-like consistency.

Thems be spicy! And I even used regular chili powder instead of cayenne!

Good though.
