Prep Time

5 Ingredients

Cooking Time

25 minutes

Olive Oil

Hot Sauce

Cornstarch

Butter

Tofu

INGREDIENTS

1

step

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Drain your tofu & place between kitchen towels. Use something heavy to put on top of your tofu to press for at least 5 minutes.

2

step

Slice your tofu into 10-12 thin strips (about 1/4-inch thick) and press one more time with a clean towel to absorb any excess liquid. 

3

step

Use a pastry brush to coat all sides of the tofu with olive oil (or toss the tofu in olive oil).

4

step

Sprinkle cornstarch on both sides of your tofu strips and lay them out flat on a baking sheet, making sure they are not overlapping one another. 

5

step

Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven to flip, and then bake for another 10-15 more minutes. Check on your tofu regularly. You’ll know your tofu strips are done when they start to turn golden brown. 

6

step

Melt the butter, add the hot sauce and use a whisk or a fork to stir and form your quick buffalo sauce. 

7

step

Remove the tofu from the oven and place it on a paper towel. Allow it to cool for 2-3 minutes before using a second paper towel to blot off any excess oil.

tip!

Save the trees! Bamboo naturally regenerates every few months, so makes for a more environmentally friendly paper towel.
