Vegan MoFo: OMG it's Vegan Prosciutto

Hello Blog.  How I miss spending time with my other MoFo'ers and reading all the wonderful bloging going on right now.  Work has gotten out of control.  Long hours and crazy when I'm here.  Very little time to cook  :(.  I also got a wonderful text from a friend that they are coming into town tonight and want to meet for dinner.  I am so excited to see them but sad I won't be cooking tonight.

I never thought you could make vegan prosciutto but leave it to Jenn Shagrin to come up with a recipe. I had to try it.
marinade
I thinly sliced about 10oz of extra firm tofu to soak in this marinade.  The marinade had cloves,fennel and mirin to name a few of the yummy items.
soaking up the goodness
I let it soak for about 2 hours and then baked it in the over for 7 minutes on each side.



As you can see it turns a lovely color and gets a little crispy on the edges.


I really enjoyed it.  It was a little hard to stop "testing" the pieces as they came out of the oven.  I've already made this a few times this month.  I will be making it again.


Ready to eat

Here's hoping I have some time for cooking soon.  Happy Thursday!  Hope everyone is doing well.

  2. I am going to have to make this, and OF COURSE I have Jenn Shagrin's "Veganize This!" cookbook. ;P

    I really appreciate that you tried this recipe out and recommend it. It looks really good, so I bookmarked it.

    Don't kill me, but I gave you another Liebster Award. Please don't feel pressured to pass this on to 5 more bloggers, but please feel free to if you want to!
