  • 6 oz High Protein Tofu
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp vital wheat gluten
  • 1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4 Tbsp your favorite buffalo sauce


  • drain excess water from your tofu and blot with paper towel, but there is no need to press it.
  • Slice your tofu into rectangular sticks or whatever shape you want your "wings" in.
  • In a shallow dish, mix cornstarch, vital wheat gluten and spices.
  • Gently toss the tofu sticks in the spice mix until they are evenly coated. You will likely only use half of the mixture, but you need a little extra to make sure you have enough.
  • Place the tofu sticks in an air fryer and "fry" at 370 degrees F for 18 minutes, tossing halfway through.
  • Alternatively, if you do not have an air fryer, you can broil on a greased baking sheet for 6 minutes, then flip and broil for another 4-6 minutes until all sides are a bit crispy.
  • Remove from air fryer or oven and toss in your favorite buffalo sauce to coat.
