These Buffalo Tofu Bites taste just like wings, minus the grease! They are easy to throw together and pack some serious heat. You can marinate the tofu for as little as 15 minutes, or overnight if you prefer. Either way they are a tasty snack or meal!
If you don’t like or want to use tofu, you can easily substitute diced chicken breast or raw de-veined and de-shelled shrimp. Simply substitute like amounts and follow the same instructions. You might want to adjust cooking times for chicken or shrimp to ensure they are cooked thoroughly.
Serve this with your favorite Buffalo wings dressing, sauce, or dip. Throw in some celery on the side to make it a true Buffalo wings experience!
