These spicy buffalo tofu nuggets are a delicious way to incorporate more plant-based food into your week! Serve them as an appetizer, at your next party, or tossed over a salad!
If you’re looking for new ways to enjoy tofu, this recipe is the one for you! The tofu is dipped in a simple plant-based batter, then baked until crispy with an option to air-fry.
It’s tossed with a vegan buffalo sauce made with just a few simple ingredients, and tastes delicious with your favorite dip or tossed over a salad.
Buffalo Tofu Nuggets
To make these nuggets extra crispy, I suggest using extra-firm tofu, or a high-protein tofu, which has the least amount of water content.
- Pat your tofu dry and cut into cubes
- Dip the cubes in the gluten-free batter
- Coat them in your crumbs
- Bake until crispy
- Serve with your homemade buffalo sauce!
Sounds easy, right? It totally is. This meal is a great option for the end of the week when groceries are running low. You can serve it as a snack or part of a larger meal.
Vegan Buffalo Sauce
The vegan buffalo sauce is made with just 4 simple ingredients. You’ll need:
- Plant-based butter
- Frank’s red hot sauce
- Honey, or pure maple syrup for a vegan version
- Optional: worcestershire sauce– you can use a vegan option if needed!
The tofu tastes best when served fresh with the sauce. If you wanted to prepare the sauce and bake the tofu ahead of time, I suggest tossing them together right before you’re ready to eat!
This flavorful dish is a delicious way to eat more tofu, and a fun way to change up your weekly proteins! Let me know if you try it in the comments below 🙂
