I froze the tofu for 2 days before baking it to give it more texture. This is the best jerky recipe I've tried so far!

This turned out HORRIBLY. I was so excited at the prospect of having a good tofu jerky recipe but it turned out way too salty and was not the texture of jerky. I followed the simple directions and cooked at 150 degrees..which was the lowest my oven could go. I don't know if that was part of the problem with texture. I would not recommend anyone try this recipe. It will only break your heart.

The tofu jerky recipe unfortunatly did not turn out as well as I expected. I did follow the directions except adding a few more spices such as paprika onion flakes and cayenne to kick it up a notch. I used my food dehydrator to cook the tofu but it ended up not chewy as expected but just with an unpleasant texture. And this was after only 5 hours in there. It was also way too salty for my and my husbands tastes. I will not make this again.

A very unusual recipe; my first time trying tofu and I can bravely say I will not attempt to do so again. By the time these were done the texture was in between dry and jiggly and therefore very unpleasant. I don't know where I went wrong but we threw out the lot.

This was bomb for me; my good friend who is an AMAZING cook tried it and I understand the concept after tasting his but still... dunno!

I'm just beginning to be a vegetarian today and with all of these great reviews I think that this may be the first tofu recipe I try!
