Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 24 oz extra firm tofu
  • 1/2 Cup cornstarch (I strongly urge non-GMO cornstarch.  Find out why here.)  *NOTE: If you cannot tolerate corn, substitute with white rice flour.
  • Oil for frying
  • Spicy Asian Wing Sauce
    • 1/4 Cup gluten-free tamari sauce
    • 1/4 Cup your favorite hot sauce
    • 1/4 Cup raw agave or maple syrup
    • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
    • 4 Tablespoons cornstarch *NOTE: If you cannot tolerate corn, substitute with arrowroot powder.
    • Optional: 3 Tablespoons vegan butter
  • Lime Agave Mayo
    • 1 Cup of my raw mayonnaise
    • 2 Tablespoons raw agave nectar
    • 2 Tablespoon gluten-free tamari sauce
    • 1 lime, juiced & zested

Directions:

  1. Let’s cut some tofu wings!  Slice your block of tofu width-wise in equal “steaks” about 1/2 inch thick & cut each one in half.  You should now have your tofu “wings.”  In a large bowl, add your cornstarch (or rice flour).  Dredge each piece of tofu until fully coated.  Don’t forget to tap off the extra breading!tofu wings flour
  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!  frying wingsAs  your wings are ready, set them aside on a baking tray.tofu wing line up
  3. In a large sauce pan on low heat add your sauce ingredients. Whisk together and let simmer for 3-5 minutes, until your sauce starts to thicken.
  4. In a mixing bowl, gently toss your tofu wings in your wing sauce until fully coated.
  5. To prepare your lime agave mayonnaise dipping sauce, add your ingredients to a medium mixing bowl and whisk together.  Taste a bite and adjust any seasonings as necessary.lime agave mayo
  6. To create a balanced meal, I served my wings with a side of black rice and oven roasted asparagus.roasted asparagus steamed black rice
