It is sometimes a hard world for vegans when it comes to find new ideas and recipes, even you love tofu!
My good friend Sissi in Switzerland reminded me it might be time to republish some of my old recipes!
Here is a simple way to prepare and enjoy tofu as it was a big piece of cheese!
Vegan Smoked Tofu!
INGREDIENTS: for ? People
-Tofu: a large piece 300~400g or more
-Miso of your liking, as much as you wish
-Soy sauce, not too much (beware of the salt)
-Japanese Sake or mirin, a little just for the taste
-Spices, if you wish!
-As the tofu shouldn’t be too soft, choose “momendofu”, or slightly solid.
-Place the tofu on a clean cloth.
-Top it with a clean plate or board.
-Put a heavy weight on top.
-Leave it like this for half a day. The tofu will reduce to half.
-Smear the whole tofu on every face with plenty of a mixture of miso, soy sauce and other ingredients of your choice. The more, the better.
-Wrap it carefully in cellophane paper and leave it in the fridge overnight.
-Take it out of the fridge and take off the cellophane paper.
-Let it dry for 2 hours at room temperature over a piece of kitchen paper.
-Smoke inside a Chinese smoking set for 1 hour.
-Very practical for smoking small quantities!
-Here you are! Enjoy!

Tasty looking recipe. What is a Chinese Smoking Set, may I ask?
It is a small set to smoke any food with wood chips!
Thank you so much, Robert-Gilles! I am amazed at the easiness of the process and would certainly start making my own smoked tofu (it looks 1000x better than the one I buy), if only I could get hold of a Chinese smoking set….
The colour is beautiful. Is it gochujang that you added to the marinade?
No, I used only red miso, but gochujang is a good idea!
