Sweet and Smoky Glazed Tofu Ham (Isa Chandra)

Vegan Month of Food 2017

“Where do you get your protein?” they inquire.
“Where do you get your fiber?” I respond.

Day 3:  But where do you get your protein? Make a protein packed meal.

Can you even believe how gorgeous this tofu is? Seriously! TOFU HAM! That’s crazy! As you might know, tofu is made from soy beans and those little babies are loaded with protein – easily digested, delicious protein.

I followed the recipe closely, but I used marmalade instead of apricot jam. I also skipped the whiskey and smoked salt. I’m telling you, the marinade actually tasted like ham. It was smoky and sweet and thick and dark. One important note is to really press the tofu well. This will help it obtain that chewy, toothsome bite we tofu lovers crave.
