Buffalo Tofu Fries [Vegan]

Save Trees. Print Less. But if you must, we charge $2.99 to encourage less waste




  • 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
