Oven Baked Bites of Tofu, in a Spicy Buffalo Crust!
- 2 lb Firm Tofu (this is 2 blocks of tofu)
- 1/2 cup Buffalo Sauce (I love Franks Red Hot )
- 3 T nutritional yeast
- 2 tsp Seasoning Salt (or 1 tsp garlic powder, and 1 tsp salt)
- 1/2 cup arrowroot starch
- Begin by draining and rinsing your tofu. Pat dry, and then cut the block in half, lengthwise. Lay slabs onto a flat surface, covered in a towel, and place a flat and heavy dish on top, to press tofu for at least one hour.
- Once the tofu has been pressed, cut slab into four strips, then rotate and cut into four again- creating cubes!
- Preheat oven to 425. In a large mixing bowl, add tofu, buffalo sauce, seasoning, and nutritional yeast. Mix gently with a spatula, as to not break up the cubes, but to make sure the seasoned sauce gets combined and all over the tofu pieces. Then, sprinkle the arrow root flour over the mixture, and gently stir, again, until all the pieces are covered in a thick batter type consistency.
- Next, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, and arrange your tofu cubes evenly. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until golden brown and crispy! Serve with ranch as a dipping sauce, or top your favorite salad, wrap, or bowl with these little bites of spice! Pro Tip: I like to toss mine with 1-2 additional tablespoons of hot sauce after they cook- for a saucy wing type of experience! Enjoy for up to a week in the refrigerator!
