For the Batter
  • cup unsweetened and unflavored non-dairy milk
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
For the Breading
  • cup panko breadcrumbs
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoons garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
For the Buffalo Tofu
  • 1 (16 ounce or 454 gram) package super-firm tofu
  • Oil mister or cooking spray
  • ½ cup Franks cayenne pepper hot sauce (not Frank's wing sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
For Serving
  • Vegan ranch or vegan blue cheese dressing
  • Chopped fresh chives
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Whisk the batter ingredients together in a medium bowl. Let the mixture sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

  3. Stir the breading ingredients together in a separate bowl.

  4. Slice the tofu into 12 triangles. To do this, slice the block into 6 rectangles, then cut each rectangle in half on a diagonal.

  5. Dip a tofu triangle into the batter and coat all sides. Shake off any excess batter, then transfer the tofu to the breading and carefully coat all sides.

  6. Place the tofu piece on the baking sheet.

  7. Repeat the process and arrange all of the tofu pieces on the baking sheet.

  8. Lightly mist the tofu with oil.

  9. Bake the tofu for 20 minutes, carefully flipping the pieces and then misting them again with oil halfway through baking.

  10. While the tofu bakes, melt the butter and mix it together with the hot sauce.

  11. After the tofu has baked for 20 minutes, take it out of the oven and coat each piece in the sauce. The easiest way to do this is by lightly dipping the pieces in the sauce with tongs, then touching up any missed spots with a basting brush.

  12. Replace the tofu pieces on the baking sheet, then return the baking sheet to the oven.

  13. Bake the tofu for 10 minutes more.

  14. Serve the tofu wings with dressing of choice and optionally sprinkled with fresh chives.
