A friend of mine recently requested some tofu recipes from me and since I’m obsessed with Buffalo flavor lately, I put the two together. This dish should remind you of spicy wings at a sports bar, minus the sticky fingers. —Dorie Colangelo
To make the tofu
1-inch slice firm tofu
bottled Buffalo wing sauce
To make the celery salad
large celery stalk, thinly sliced on an angle
rice wine vinegar (or other white vinegar)
freshly cracked black pepper
In This Recipe
Wrap the tofu slice in a paper towel and press firmly to release all the water.
Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a saute pan over medium high heat and sear the tofu on each side for 2-3 minutes or until browned.
Transfer the tofu to a small bowl and add the Buffalo wing sauce, turning to allowing the tofu to marinate on all sides.
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, toss together the celery, olive oil, vinegar, pinch of salt and a few turns of pepper.
Serve the tofu drizzled with all the sauce it was marinated in and place the celery salad right alongside.
