Hot for Tofu, Sriracha-Style | Feed Your Skull

Oh man.

There’s nothing like trying some delicious-ass vegan food from the Moscow Food Co-op hot bar, to then try and recreate it at home.

Never quite getting their results, but inadvertently making something equally delicious.

That’s what happened here.

It was more than a month ago now and they had something new and exciting at the hot bar. Spicy tofu!

The tofu was lightly coated with a translucent orange-red dressing. It was mildly to not so mildly hot and incredibly addictive to the point Jeremy was even invested.

Jeremy who doesn’t really like spicy except for small quantities or not at all.

Something similar happened when I made this batch.

But Jeremy kept coming back for more and so did I.

Hot for Tofu, Sriracha-Style | Feed Your SkullIt’s a little bit spicier than the co-op’s version and has way more ‘dressing’, but worthy of making again and again.

It involves whisking up a sauce, cutting tofu into cubes, marinating 4-6 hours (or overnight), and baking for 18ish minutes.

Sound good?

I thought so.

These spicy tofu squares were delicious served with thinly shaved red cabbage, shredded yellow beets, and green onion.

Dressing of choice was Annie’s Goddess Dressing. I’ve been in love with that so much that it doesn’t sit in the refrigerator door for long.

    Delicious, and the end results are so colorful in that salad, too! Somehow I’ve ended up with 5 different varieties of sriracha in my fridge, so I’m always thrilled to find new ways to use it.

    Thank you for leaving such a sweet comment on my blog, by the way! 🙂
