Tofu strips

Perfect for any snack attack moment ๐Ÿ˜‹. I was searching for a few new recipe ideas to snack in-between the outdoor days, since Spring has started and Summer is just around the corner. All the credits to TheVeganHarvest for this one. So simple to make, but so good! The Vegan Harvest suggested to serve with dill sauce and Iโ€™m positive itโ€™s an excellent combination. But I had leftover thyme laying around and I mixed it with the mayo, works perfect as well. Enjoy!
