I’m so grateful for liquid smoke for existing, because it means I can make tofu bacon that tastes just like the real thing!

And if I could, I would put tofu bacon on everything. I love it so much.

You guys, this meal is so easy to put together with such a satisfying result.

Every element in this pasta has a different flavor profile, and when they all come together it’s a party in your mouth.

I’m not joking when I say, that this dish comes together in 20 minutes. The key is being organized. 😉

While the pasta is cooking in salted water, I create the avo sauce and tofu bacon.

I use a mini blender that came with my Bosch hand blender (I love it!!!).

I put all the ingredients in it, blend and ta-dah! The sauce is ready!

That was easy!

When I’m done with that, I move on to make the tofu bacon.

Cut half a block of firm tofu into tiny bits (that resemble bacon bits, ya know).

In a small bowl, combine the liquid smoke, soy sauce, oil and salt, mix then add the tofu.

Make sure all of the tofu bits are properly covered then put in a pan and fry on medium heat until the bits turn “bacon colored” (dark brown-ish).

Make sure that the tofu bits don’t burn! You have to stand next to the pan and keep stirring/flipping.

All that’s left is to mix all of your ingredients in a bowl, serve and DEVOUR.
