Buffalo Tofu Bites

Anyone out there with me that Frank’s Hot Sauce is a food group all on its own? Whew. It’s the best!

Anything hot & spicy and with TOFU, and I’m in.

It took me a while to become a tofu lover, but now I can’t get enough. It’s not nearly as weird as I once thought it was. For me, it comes down to knowing how to cook it.  And it’s actually simple, and you only need a few ingredients: tofu, cornstarch, and coconut oil.  That will be the base to cooking it, and then you can add the sauce you like to it.  I use Franks for a Buffalo Tofu–or you could use Teriyaki for an asian version to serve over fried rice.  The possibilities could go on and on!

The Result?

All day, every day y’all. So, so good.

With football starting in the next few weeks, I can definitely see this big platter of food sitting on the coffee table and gobbled up in no time!

Serve the Buffalo Tofu Bites with homemade french fries and vegan ranch!
