1/2 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 Tbsp. liquid smoke
1/2 lb. extra-firm tofu

• Mix the soy sauce, yeast flakes, maple syrup and liquid smoke together in a shallow container. With a cheese slicer, shave the tofu into very thin slices. Marinate the tofu in the soy sauce mixture for 1 day or more.
• To cook, heat a lightly oiled, heavy frying pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, fry the tofu slices until they are golden-brown and almost crispy on both sides, scraping underneath the slices as you turn them with a sturdy spatula. Turn several times during cooking and let cool in the pan; the slices will crisp up as they cool.

Makes about 40 thin slices
