Buffalo Tofu Bites

These amazing tofu bites have the taste of Buffalo Hot Wings without the carnage...yay! My hubby came up with this recipe and they were so delicious!!! Great alone or accompanied by Vegan Ranch Dressing.


Buffalo Tofu Bites

Ingredients

1 packet of extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
1/2 cup corn flour
Oil for deep frying

for the sauce;
1 cup Frank's Hot Sauce (I used the medium one)
3 Tbls vegan butter
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp course black pepper (optional)
2 Tbls bourbon (optional)
Ground cayene pepper to taste (optional - if you like them HOT)


Method

Preheat oven to 200F and prepare an oven tray lined with foil.
Cut the tofu longways into 1/4 inch strips then cut down the middle to create bite size pieces.
Heat deep frying oil to 375F.
Dredge the tofu bites in corn flour and set aside to fry.


As the oil is heating up make the sauce.
In a small pot whisk all sauce ingredients on a medium heat until well mixed.
Turn heat down to low and allow to simmer.


Once oil is hot enough fry 4 pieces of tofu at a time until slightly golden then transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.


Once the four new pieces of tofu are cooking place the paper towel ones in the sauce and turn to coat.


Leave until the next batch is ready to come in.
Once ready to take out place on the oven tray.
When all pieces are on the tray bake in the oven for 10 mins or until ready to eat.
This will keep them warm and allow the sauce to dry a bit.
Serve alone or with vegan ranch dressing.


Left overs (if there are any!) make a great salad;
