Spicy Tofu Buffalo Wings with Veganized Blue Cheese Dressing

21 Feb


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
  3. In a large sauce pan on low heat, add your buffalo sauce & non-dairy butter to melt.  Whisk together.P1070655 Add your battered tofu wings to your pan and toss to ensure even coating.  If your wings seem a bit dry, add a little more sauce (try 1 Tablespoon at a time).
  4. Enjoy eating whole!

    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!

      Hi Sara! Thank you 🙂 . If they were a tad oily you can lay your fried wings on a paper bag (or paper towel) and let the excess oil absorb. Hope that helps!! 😀

    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 🙂 .

    Yum & Wow! (And, can they be baked instead of fried?)

    • eatingwhole September 26, 2013 at 6:49 pm #

      Yes they can totally be baked instead of fried!! 🙂

    Hi !

    Making these for the first time and opting to bake them…hoping 375 is a good recommended temp?

    • eatingwhole February 2, 2014 at 4:49 pm #

      Hi Jill! I usually crank my oven up to 400 and bake at least 15 mins on each side (they should be just golden when you flip them!).

      • jill February 2, 2014 at 5:38 pm #

        Wow, you responded on Super Bowl Sunday–thank you. I managed to pull it off at 375..but next time, i’ll crank that baby up to 400. 🙂

        You’re welcome. I’m glad it worked at 375! 🙂
