Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb extra firm tofu, drained
  • 12 cup Braggs amino acids (or soy sauce)
  • 3 tablespoons liquid smoke
  • 18 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon honey (or use sweetener of choice)


  1. Cut the drained tofu into long narrow strips(about 1/4" thickness). They may look big, but they will shrink during baking.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the Braggs(or soy sauce), liquid smoke, water, cajun spice, and honey.
  3. Place the tofu strips in a shallow baking pan or cookie sheet and pour the marinade over them. Let marinate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight for best results.
  4. Cook the tofu in a food dehydrator, using directions, or bake in the oven for about 4-6 hours at 200*F.
  5. Turn the tofu over once every hour to bake it evenly. Continue until the texture is very chewy, but not crispy. This will keep indefinitely. Store in a container with a tight fitting lid.
  6. Enjoy!
