Tofu strips are rubbed with a smoky and spicy seasoning blend and then dehydrated to create a vegan jerky snack that's perfect for road trips and camping!
AuthorStephanie McKercher, RDN
1block extra firm tofupressed (wrap in clean towel and place something heavy on top for at least 30 minutes)
Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
Unwrap pressed tofu and slice into thin strips (I used a mandolin slicer on the 1/4" setting) and lay on a flat, non-stick surface (such as parchment paper).
Mix together spices in a small bowl. Sprinkle half of the spice blend on top of the tofu strips and gently pat the spices down with your fingertips.
Spread tofu strips on dehydrator racks with spiced side facing down. Sprinkle the remainder of spices on top and gently pat down with fingers. Cover dehydrator and turn to high. Dehydrate until tofu is dry and chewy, about 3-4 hours. Leave in longer if you prefer a crunchier texture.
