Buffalo Tofu Wings and Creamy Ranch Dip
Ingredients Creamy Ranch Dip 1/2 cup raw cashews 1/4 cup hot water 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 clove garlic 2 teaspoons white miso 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon onion powder 3 tablespoons fresh chopped herbs (I like parsley and dill, but whatever you have on hand works!) Salt and pepper, to taste Buffalo Tofu Wings 1 (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, frozen and thawed, then pressed for at least 30 minutes 1 tablespoon cornstarch Pinch of salt and pepper 2 tablespoons grapeseed or olive oil 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil 2 tablespoons Frank's Red Hot Sauce For serving Celery sticks Instructions Make the ranch dip: Combine all ingredients through onion powder in the smallest bowl of a food processor or high speed blender. (Note that if you don't have a high speed blender, you'll want to soak the cashews for a few hours.) Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides, and add more hot water if needed, a tablespoon at a time. Stir in the herbs and season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until the wings are done. Make the wings: Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the tofu into 6 slices, then cut each slice in half lengthwise so you have 12 sticks. Place the tofu sticks in a shallow dish and sprinkle them with cornstarch, salt and pepper. Gently roll them to coat—they'll break easily, so be careful! Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the tofu wings in the skillet and cook them on each side until lightly browned and crispy, 3-5 minutes on each side. Transfer the tofu to the baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk together the hot sauce and coconut oil until the oil is fully incorporated. Drizzle the sauce onto the tofu and gently toss to coat. Bake for 10-15 minutes, turning over halfway through cooking time, until the tofu is crispy. Arrange the tofu wings on a plate with celery sticks. Serve with additional hot sauce, if desired, and ranch dressing.

When I was a strict vegetarian, I used to have the worst cravings for buffalo wings. Hahah, this would've been perfect.
