Buffalo Tofu Fries [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 1 package of tofu, frozen, thawed, drained, and pressed
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce
  • 4 tablespoons light vegan butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil


  1. Cut the tofu into shapes that resemble French fries. In a large resealable storage bag or in a shallow bowl, add the flour and the spices. Add the tofu fries to the bag or bowl and toss them around gently until the tofu is covered in the seasoned flour.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Shake off the excess flour from the tofu fries and cook them in batches in the pan until they are browned and crispy. This might take about 4-5 minutes per side. The 2nd batch will cook faster since the pan and the oil will be hotter.
  3. While the tofu fries are cooking, combine the hot sauce, Vegan butter and agave in a large bowl and whisk.
  4. When the tofu fries are cooked, transfer them to the hot sauce mixture and toss to coat.
  5. Serve with celery and carrot sticks and the dipping sauce of your choice. We made a Vegan “ranch” dressing by combining mayo, sour cream, dill, and pickle relish.





When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word website which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.

We tried these last night but changed the recipe a bit to use up stuff in our pantry. I used sriracha for the hot sauce and honey instead of agave (it\'s what we had on hand and we are new to the Veeg life).

1 package of tofu, drained, and pressed (Extra-firm was perfect; also didn\'t freeze it and they were delicious!)
1/3 cup sriracha hot sauce
4 tablespoons light vegan butter, melted
1 tablespoons organic honey
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder (OMITTED THIS because we ran out)
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil

They turned out amazing and inspired me to download the Food Monster App. We are aiming for a fully vegan lifestyle (a challenging shift) and these recipes are seriously helpful in learning how to adjust routine grocery shopping and go-to recipes.

May I echo? Of all the sharing choices, printing is not one of them. After ruining the screen on my ipad, I print my recipes. A 'green' printing choice would be wonderful. Thanks you.

@Kathryn Bulver. Just fermented tofu, looks like the ones you buy in block form except they're fermented. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2004/08/04/fermented-soy.aspx

why does this stuff looks like it's swimming in oil? The other thing I don't quite understand about a trend I noticing: many so called "vegan" dishes reminiscent of their meat counterpart being made everyday, as it to be a substitute for the meat dish. I don't understand the notion of eating these things in lieu of the meat itself. The idea is repulsive. I never wished I was eating meat or mimicking meat dishes. It says that vegetable dishes are boring unless they imitate meat. Stop this trend and enjoy your non meat based dishes purely for their sake and feel satisfied with its own intrinsic nature and nutritional benefits.

Um because the super bowl is coming around and many of us want to eat similar foods our friends will be eating and want to share them with our friends to get them to try other foods. All vegan foods do not have to be healthy. It is for the super bowl, not every day. And this recipe can easily be made more healthy.

Meat-like dishes are very helpful to those transitioning to a cruelty-free lifestyle. I, personally, do not find tofu particularly meat-like. Slapping some spicy sauce on it doesn\'t make it any more so. This is a delicious spicy tofu dish that omnivores may also like.
