1In a bowl or airtight container, combine soy sauce, maple syrup, liquid smoke and ½ cup water. Submerge the tofu strips in the marinade, then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight if possible.
2Heat the oil in a frying pan over high heat. Add the tofu strips, along with 2–3 tablespoons of the marinade. Cook for 2–3 minutes, then flip the strips over and cook until the marinade has been absorbed, and the tofu is browned and crispy on both sides. Voilà, you've made facon!
3Mash the avocado in a bowl with lemon juice and salt.
4To assemble your epic TLTs, spread the mashed avocado on each Turkish roll, then add the crispy tofu strips, and mayonnaise to taste. Top them off with tomato slices and lettuce leaves, then carry those rolls to the table like the champion you are.
Tip: If you don’t have time to marinate the tofu for 2 hours, add some extra marinade to the pan when cooking the tofu.
