    Default Tofu Bacon

    I saw a recipe on Facebook for making meat-free bacon with tofu. I was intrigued to give it a go. It comprises of thinly cut tofu strips soaked in a marinade for a few minutes and then grilled or fried, even up to crispiness. I tried this today and I am astonished by the authenticity of the taste. I replaced the onion powder with regular table salt. I already had liquid smoke in stock but you can get a bottle of liquid smoke through Amazon for about £3. The other ingredients should already be in a well stocked kitchen. Enjoy!

    I don't get why you are vegan but want to emulate, as close as possible, something to eat that you despise...

    I was a meat eater, but turned veggie some years ago, but saw the light and am now (& have been for years & years),
    a born again eater of anything...

    It can take a pig up to 2 minutes to die in agony at a slaughter house. A pig is a sentient being who feels pain, love, joy and affection, and other sensations like we do.

    So... If they killed the pig instantly then you'd eat the bacon?

    They can't though. And it is not just the killing. There is the issue of cruelty during the rearing the animal, the cramped conditions, the slapping, the dirty conditions. There is also the question of commodifying an animal for its flesh, just for it to be stolen away from its bones for our dietary satisfaction. There is also the speciesism that we discriminate that we see some animals with compassion but others as food. It isn't fair and why do we need to do that when there are other foods that are just as tasty and nourishing?

    But despite all that sentiment, you still want to know and experience what the poor pig really tasted like? That's weird. And twisted.
    Why not do the poor pig justice and eat it instead of some strange morphing substance? I still don't get it, and I never will...
