So, if you follow this blog, there are probably 2 things you know about me…1. I am a vegetarian, and 2. I love buffalo sauce. Back in the day, before I was a veggie (nickname given by 2 ultra-creative teenagers), I used to eat buffalo chicken wraps all the time…and when I say all the time, I mean it…it was pretty much the only thing I ever ordered when dining out. So, when I decided to become a vegetarian, I am a little nervous about not being able to have my buffalo chicken anymore. It didn’t take long to realize, though, that you can put buffalo sauce on anything. Anything. I’ve experimented with so many different ‘buffalo’ recipes….Buffalo Quinoa, Buffalo Bleu Cheese Fries, Cheesy Buffalo Baked Potatoes…and the list goes on. Buffalo sauce is awesome. However, I had never really found a replacement for my buffalo chicken wrap, until now. I am not sure why I didn’t think of this before, because when I did finally think of it a few weeks ago, it was a major ‘ah-ha’ moment (as my girl, Oprah would say)….Buffalo Tofu wraps. This would be the answer to all my buffalo prayers.
Now, I may have lost some of y’all at ‘tofu’, but trust me, this is NOT your typical tofu recipe. My husband thought I was feeding him chicken when I made this, because it is SO similar. It’s really all about the texture (like crunchy fried chicken bits), and the sauce, and the way this tofu is prepared makes it really seem like chicken. You just want to fry the tofu (I know, super healthy…but neither is fried chicken!), until it gets good and crispy. It doesn’t take long, about 5 minutes, and it is so tasty. I used fresh lettuce and tomatoes from our garden to top the buffalo tofu, and then added blue cheese dressing….so yum. Of course, you can top with whatever you love!
With the frying of the tofu, I wouldn’t eat this everyday (well, I would, but my body wouldn’t like me very much), but it is definitely awesome when you want to get your buffalo ‘chicken’ fix in.
