Buffalo Tofu Bites

This is the perfect snack for football Sundays…it’s super easy, slightly sweet, definitely spicy, and oh-so-tasty. I like to use the firm tofu from Trader Joe’s – you don’t need to drain it, and it’s nice and dense so it holds together well. I always use the whole pack so I’ll have leftovers…but if you are cooking for company or a family, that plan might be moot! (Hint: I use the leftovers on pizza!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of firm tofu (I use Trader Joe’s brand)
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Vegan Buffalo Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

  1. Cut the tofu into small rectangular pieces – about 1″ by 1/2″ or so.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the tofu pieces and the salt and pepper.
  4. Brown the tofu on both sides.
  5. In a measuring cup, mix the sauce ingredients – the Vegan Buffalo Sauce and the agave nectar.
  6. Pour the sauce over the tofu and mix evenly, very gently, making sure all of the tofu is covered.
  7. Let the tofu and sauce simmer for a few minutes until the sauce starts to reduce and thicken.
  8. Remove from the heat and pour into a serving bowl.
  9. Serve with your favorite dressing. I used Daiya Blue Cheeze dressing…so yummy.
  10. Enjoy!
