Salty and sweet bacon bits to fill your bacon cravings! I’m not going to lie, I used to love bacon. I went vegetarian and then vegan, not because I went off the taste of meat, but because of the cruelty attached to it. So I’m all about meat substitutes. These are the perfect substitute for bacon bits, and are so easy and cheap to make!

They’re crunchy little tofu cubes coated in a whole lot of flavour ๐Ÿ™‚

They’re absolutely delicious in salads, pastas, pizzas, burgers, toast…. the list goes on…..

I always make a big batch of these whenever my favourite tofu brand is on sale (Tofoo Co. Smoked) and keep them in the freezer for when a recipe calls for them (which is often)!

I always use smoked tofu in my recipe as it adds the smokey flavour that bacon has, but you can use normal firm tofu if you haven’t got the smoked one.

Give it a go and let me know how you get on!
