Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Cut pressed tofu into strips about an inch wide and 1/2-inch thick. Place into a sealable plastic bag and toss in the 2 tablespoons of flour.
  3. Place the almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and stir. Let sit for a minute to thicken. Place the panko in another bowl.
  4. Dip each piece of tofu into the almond milk and then coat with the panko.
  5. Place them onto a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Repeat with each piece of tofu.
  6. Line them up next to each other on the pan. Spray each piece of tofu with more nonstick spray.
  7. Bake them at 425°F for 15-20 minutes until they're brown and crispy.
  8. While the tofu is baking, make the sauce. Add all the sauce ingredients to a small saucepan.
  9. Heat them on medium high, whisking them until the sugar has dissolved.
  10. Turn the stove on low and cook the for a minute or so until it thickens a bit. Turn off the heat and let it sit until the tofu is done.
  11. Make the blue cheese by whisking all the ingredients together except the tofu.
  12. Make sure the water is all pressed out of the tofu, then crumble really well so it looks like cheese crumbles, and stir it into the dip. Set this aside.
  13. When the tofu is ready, toss it in the sauce and serve it immediately with blue cheese dip.
