Chipotle BLPT Dip, and a Giveaway!

BLPT Dip | www.thatwasvegan.com

Like many vegans, I often find myself staring at random food items and wondering “Can I make this into bacon?” Well, spoiler alert… when the food item in question is the new Nasoya TofuBaked, the answer is a resounding Yes!

They sent me a few packages of their newest flavor, Chipotle, and asked me to create an appetizer recipe. (If you’re more into the teriyaki flavor, check out my Teriyaki Tofu n’ Butternut Bowls!) If you’re not yet familiar with TofuBaked, it’s cubed tofu that has already been marinated and baked, and is ready to eat! You can heat it and include it in a bowl or stir-fry, and you can slice it cold and put it on a sandwich. Very versatile! And since I really want you to try it, one lucky reader is going to receive FIVE free product coupons from Nasoya!

Not having been a really active cook lately, I’ll admit that I hit a small mental roadblock. I couldn’t come up with anything, until the bacon idea surfaced. I decided to slice the tofu really thinly, then fry it. Like bacon. At first I was planning to recreate my BLPTs using the chipotle “bacon”, but then my mom (who is visiting) mentioned that she would really prefer a dip… and since I like to make my mom happy, Chipotle BLPT Dip it was! 

With or without spicy bbq sauce…

This dip has all the flavor of a BLT with pickles, but better because of the smoky, chipotle tofu bacon. It’s delicious perfection, really.

I served it with crispy, salty pita chips, but any hearty dipper would work. I can’t help but point out how perfect this would be for that upcoming football game everyone is talking about… Oh, and in case you need more appetizer ideas… Enjoy!

    Oh my goodness tofu has a place on my table breakfast lunch or dinner! I love tofu breakfast sammies, “egg” salad sammies made with tofu, shake n’ bake tofu slices, I really can’t get enough and I have been eyes the baked tofu and have yet to take the plunge!

  • Katherine February 2, 2016, 9:39 am

    For me, I’m most likely to have tofu at lunch or dinner. That’s mostly because I’ve never been a big breakfast person, though.

  • JoAnn Lakes February 2, 2016, 10:31 am

    I’m going to have to try frying my baked tofu. Bacon, good idea!

  • Jacky February 2, 2016, 11:12 am

    I could eat tofu all day long! I’ve had it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and even dessert – it makes for a great pudding base!

  • Brittnie February 2, 2016, 3:17 pm

    I love tofu all the time, but especially for breakfast in scrambles and fried for dinner in curries and stir-fry!
