After weeks of searching to no avail, she turned to me to come up with something for her. Last night was my first attempt. She loves hot sauce so I used that as an easy flavor base and used tofu as my texture base.
I sliced the tofu thin and pressed it out. Then I fried it in the deep fryer to get a nice edge to it. After, I slow roasted it in the oven, continually flipping and smothering it in the sauce. After an hour of roasting I let them cool and they were ready to serve! Perfect with a vegan ranch sauce and some lettuce and tomato!
