15 Minute Crispy Low Fat Buffalo Tofu; no pressing required!

I just made a batch of this awesome tofu.  I used 7.5 oz of Trader Joes Extra Firm Tofu and Dry Fried it. The GREAT thing about Dry Frying your tofu, is that you don't have to press it.  Let's face it; it's kind of a pain in the ass to do that. I know you're skeptical, but trust me, just this once and come on over the the dark side of Melomeals Shortcuts!

Here is a Tutorial on How To Dry Fry Tofu:

While the tofu was cooking, I made a quick sauce with around 1/2 cup of Franks Red Hot Wing Sauce, 1 tbsp garlic powder and 1 tsp of my Chipotle Coconut Butter. (I warmed this up in a small saucepan).  When the tofu was finished, I tossed it in the sauce.

It's that simple and the tofu tastes like was marinating all day and fried!

I will probably have a big cabbage/kale salad with live sauerkraut, cukes, tomatoes and onions.

I also have a lovely sugar free berry frozen yogurt in the freezer I can have for dessert. Stay tuned for more on that!

  3. I have always hated tofu- but I saw your method of dry frying and figured I would give it a try! turns out I love it made this way! after cooking I dipped in a little barbeque sauce and put an a bun with pickles and onions - I could eat it this way every day! amazing! thanks for all you do,recipes and inspiration! now if I could figure out how to do this in my truck ( I drive a "big rig") I have pretty limited kitchen resources

  4. What a wonderful idea - I absolutely LOVE it! Can't wait to give it a whirl. Thank you for sharing
