Getting ready for vacation - making vegan jerky! Top photo is the dehydrator in action. Second photo is completed seitan jerky (wheat gluten; very high protein). Praise seitan! The last photo is a few pieces of finished tofu jerky, Hawaiian flavored. It looks like Spam, appropriate for a trip to Hawaii where they still serve Spam in restaurants as part of plate lunches! The tofu jerky is so good, it's worth the price of the dehydrator just to make that one item. I think even people who don't like tofu would like this jerky. It's seasoned with apple juice, savory spices, sugar, molasses, ginger, black and cayenne peppers. The recipe is from Sarah Kramer's cookbook (the one with the red cover).
