Tofu Jerky

Recipe by Aunt Cookie
READY IN: 12hrs 15mins
YIELD: 12 pieces




  • Cut the cube of tofu horizontally into four pieces, and then slice it into strips (I had a total of 12). The strips should be about 4 millimeters in thickness. They're going to shrink a lot in the oven, so they should start out pretty thick.
  • Mix all the other ingredients together.
  • Arrange the tofu in a single layer in a shallow baking pan or cookie sheet and pour the marinade over it.
  • Let it soak for several hours or overnight.
  • Drain excess liquid and dry tofu in food dehydrator or 200 F oven. This will take 4 to 8 hours, depending on the weather (it took six hours for me in the oven).
  • Flip the tofu over hourly so it dries evenly.
  • Dry the jerky until it is very chewy, but not crispy.
