Buffalo Tofu

Combine hot sauce, tamari, mustard, 1 t onion powder, ½ t garlic powder, and pepper. Stir in the tofu. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 1 to 12 hours.

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly oil the cookie sheet and set aside.

Set up your coating station with these four items in a row:

  1. Shake tofu cubes gently and transfer to a plate.
  2. Stir milk into the remaining marinade.
  3. Put arrowroot on a plate.
  4. Combine breadcrumbs, remaining onion and garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Dip a tofu cube in the marinade, then arrowroot, then marinade, then crumbs. Set on the cookie sheet and repeat with the rest of the tofu.

Bake for 25 minutes, turn the cubes, and bake another 10 minutes, until golden.

Buffalo Tofu Sauce

Whisk all the ingredients and serve with the tofu. You might like to provide toothpicks for dipping the tofu in the sauce.

Or try Korean-inspired dipping sauce

Notes *For lots of flavor without the spiciness, use red pepper coulis instead of hot sauce.
