Speed entry: Smoked Tofu


EAT IT EAT IT EAT IT EAT IT HOLY SHIT WHY DIDN'T ANYONE EVER TELL ME THIS IS SO FUCKING GOOD.
I've eaten things with liquid smoke before and been, quite honest, a bit turned off from it being so overwhelming and kind of weird so I guess that's why I never thought about giving smoked tofu a try.
In Sydney I work two days a week for an organic home delivery service, packing organic fruit and veg and groceries into boxes for delivery. Which, in itself is an amazing thing to be able to work with but not only that I get to snack on 100% certified organic food all the time and discover 'new' brands or products (new to me, not necessarily new to the planet. although we had this Mexican chocolate about a month ago...) and we can eat things/take things home from work when they are out of date or close to it.
SO. I get to have lots of caramelised onion hummus (!!!!) and beautiful fresh jams on my corn things (bleh) as well as beautiful fruit and veg, and I get to slice off a couple of pieces of smoked tofu for myself today and BANG BANG BANG omnomnom my mind exploded.

in shorter: eat the fuck out of this shiz'nit for the picture of it is making me salivate and maybe even have lustful tastey thoughts.

This stuff is awesome!!! A bit pricey, but awesome. What brand is the caramelised hummus? I want, I need.

Is the caramelised hummus by Paradise Beach Purveyors? Cause they have that is yummo but it's a bit exxy.

And I have seen that smoked tofu @ my local organic co-op but never thought to try it. Did you just fry it and eat it as is?

I've only had something with liquid smoke once, and it was Pip's fake bacon (I think). It was quite nice actually.
Is it like smoked chicken in texture, ie quite firm and 'meaty', or is it still tofu-y? It's firm tofu, yeah? Cause I'd be freaked out if it wobbled!
