  • 1 tablespoons agave nectar

Preparation

  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.
