Buffalo Tofu Wedges

If you are not a big fan of tofu or know someone who isn't, these buffalo tofu wedges will change their ways! They are packed with flavor!


– 12 oz of super firm tofu (if you can't find super firm, at least get extra firm) – 1 tbsp of cooking oil  – 1/2 C of vinegar-based hot sauce – 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper – 1/2 tsp of paprika – 1/2 tsp of garlic – 1/2 tsp of black pepper – 1/3 tsp of salt

Slice the super firm tofu in thin triangle wedges. Once again, super firm high protein tofu works the best, but if you have to, use extra firm.

In a frying pan, heat your cooking oil over medium-high until it starts to bubble. Add the wedges and cook until they turn golden brown on both sides. Turn down the heat to medium. This should take less than 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the margarine on low heat. Stir in the hot sauce, cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic, pepper, and salt.

After the sauce is well-stirred, pour half of the sauce onto the tofu. Make sure that the sauce is poured directly on the wedges and not on the surface of the pan. Flip them over and pour the remaining sauce on the tofu. Cook for another few minutes.

Serve with carrots and celery. A helpful tip: letting the sauce cool a little will solidify it. Pour any excess sauce over the wedges before eating and let your taste buds tailgate.
