We’ve had this idea stuck in our heads for a while now.
While recreating crispy deep fried chicken wings at home would be AWESOME, it’s not exactly our style. We generally like to leave deep frying to the professionals.
But y’all know we love our tofu here at How to Eat. Especially when it comes to adapting classic meat dishes!
So when Litehouse Foods asked us to create a recipe using their ranch dressing, it was the perfect opportunity to make our buffalo tofu “wings” dream a reality. Because what goes better with buffalo wings than ranch dipping sauce? Nada.
Sure, you could make your own ranch dipping sauce. In fact, we have a version right here.
But lets be real. A working mom trying to feed her family a three course, everything-made-from-scratch feast is just not happening on a busy Wednesday night.
Sitting down for dinner with a “half-homemade” meal the whole family can eat together? That, is achievable.
This dressing is really darn delicious. It’s found in the refrigerated produce section that we’ve always referred to as the ‘fancy dressing’ sections. It’s also conveniently located near the celery, which is absolutely mandatory in the making of any sort of buffalo wing sauce dish.
Now let’s talk about these wings, shall we? Instead of a trip in the deep fryer, these tofu “wings” crips up with the help of a spicy cornstarch batter and the high heat of your oven. Similar to our buffalo cauliflower, they are then tossed with a spicy mixture of hot sauce and melted butter to give you those inevitable saucy ‘chicken wing’ fingers. This is a no cutlery zone.
This Litehouse ranch dressing is the perfect fresh tasting dip to cool things down, and is a dynamite contrast to the spicy ‘wings’. So get ready to dunk away and make sure to serve ’em up with lots and lots of napkins.
And a cold beer wouldn’t hurt either.
