Preparation

  1. Press your tofu, then slice into 1/2-inch cubes and marinate (see below). Once the tofu has marinated (for at least one hour), drain it, and combine it in a small bowl with the breading mix to coat the tofu before frying.
  2. In a large skillet, heat about 2 tablespoon of oil (olive or vegetable) over medium heat. Cook the tofu for 4 to 6 minutes, turning until golden brown and lightly crispy on all sides. Meanwhile, prepare the buffalo sauce.
  3. Combine buffalo sauce ingredients in a pot and stir well. Raise the heat to medium and stir occasionally until heated through. Add the fried tofu to the sauce when ready, stir, heat, and eat!

Notes

If you'd like to decrease the spice a bit, you can try increasing the butter, to 1/3 cup. I would definitely recommend serving this with a vegan ranch. This sauce goes great with any veggie chicken. Sometimes my boyfriend will buy pre-prepared vegetarian buffalo wings and dip into this stuff for a little extra oomph.
