Baked Buffalo Tofu Bites

I used to love buffalo wings until I removed meat from my diet. Luckily, there are ways to get that spicy, crispy flavor without the chicken! These buffalo tofu bites are delicious – and versatile. They can be eaten as a snack or topping a salad or pasta.

There is a bit of prep work to get the tofu ready. I like to press tofu between two dinner plates – placing soup cans onto the top plate to weight it down a bit. Press the tofu for at least an hour. Then, once you add the breading ingredients to separate bowls, do the assembly line approach. I found that using one hand to dip into the first two bowls and the other hand to dip into the third bowl to be the least messy method 🙂 Once the tofu bites are baking you’ll prepare the sauce. Hope you enjoy them!
