Spicy Tofu Buffalo Wings with Veganized Blue Cheese Dressing


Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 24 oz extra firm organic tofu, such as Nasoya Sprouted Super Firm Tofu, drained
  • 1/2 Cup cornstarch + more as needed (substitute with rice flour if you cannot tolerate corn); I strongly urge Non-GMO cornstarch! Find out why here!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (depends on your heat tolerance!)
  • 2 Tablespoons non-dairy butter, melted
  • 1/2 Cup of your favorite Buffalo Hot Sauce + more if needed
  • Oil for frying (I used organic grape seed oil)
  • Optional: 1 batch of my Sour Cream Dip (alternative allergy-friendly recipes!)


  1. Let’s cut some tofu wings!  Slice your block of tofu in equal “steaks” about 1/2 inch thick & cut each one in half.  You should now have your tofu “wings.”  In a large bowl, mix your cornstarch (or rice flour) & spices.breading Dredge each piece of tofu until fully coated.  Don’t forget to tap off some of the extra breading!coated tofu
  2. Heat your cast iron or frying pan to medium-high heat & add 2 Tablespoons of oil, or enough to coat the bottom of your pan.  Fry each wing until they are golden on each side (about 5-7 minutes) & be sure to add more oil as necessary!  As  your wings are ready, set them aside on a baking tray.breaded tofu finished

    I made these last night. And except for maybe being a little too oily for me, they turned out GREAT and were so easy to make!

    How is the texture inside? Often when I cook tofu, the outside is great, but a mushy inside! I hate that. Is that how it’s supposed to be?

      Hi Leslie! I use extra firm tofu for this reason (I’m not a fan of that consistency, either!). If you can find it, Wildwood’s Extra Firm Tofu in the vacuum pack is perfect for this recipe 🙂 .
