Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo tofu bites! If you love tofu and you love buffalo wings, this recipe is for you. Heck, if you just like tofu, this recipe is for you.
This is my favorite way of making crispy tofu in the oven: just toss in cornstarch and bake. The outsides get all crunchy and crisp and the insides stay creamy. After the oven the tofu is tossed in a easy 3 ingredient buffalo sauce that’s made from sriracha, butter, and honey. It’s seriously so good. Maybe even better than buffalo wings?! It’s a heck of a lot easier than making buffalo wings and easier to eat too.
The best part about this recipe is that almost all of it happens in the oven so you can just chill out on your phone and scroll through instagram, check out cute animal videos, or laugh at memes. When you get hungry, you’ve got a spicy, satisfying snack. Seriously so good. Don’t forget the celery and ranch sauce!
Crispy Oven Baked Buffalo Tofu Bites Recipe
- 1 package pressed or firm tofu*
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup sriracha
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons honey
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Dry off your tofu with a paper towel and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Toss with the cornstarch and arrange the tofu on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 30-45 minutes – midway through, flip the tofu cubes.
When you have just 5 minutes left on the baking time (at that point your tofu should be a light golden brown) start the sauce. In a frying pan, heat up the sriracha, butter and honey over medium heat until combined and bubbly.
Remove the tofu from the oven and toss in the sauce. Enjoy hot!
* I buy pressed tofu at the store, but I know some places don’t sell it. You can substitute regular medium or firm tofu, just cut it and place it on clean paper towels to drain, flipping every so often until it removes most of the excess moisture.
