Vegan Spicy Tofu Jerky


Well Known Member
The spicy tofu jerky is an amazing dish that I know. And I realize it may appear to be insane to make spicy tofu jerky yet you won’t be baffled. With the majority of the fiery flavoring and its chewy dried consistency, you presumably won’t think that it is tofu.

How to make spicy tofu jerky
• 400g Tofu Jerky, drain and cut into triangles
• 3 dried chilis, chopped
