Tofu Buffalo Bites (C3)

Adapted from Morinu website

Serves 4

1 package Morinaga Silken Tofu – Extra Firm
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs  (see Note 1)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
3 tablespoons hot pepper sauce such as Frank’s
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 egg
1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch dressing
carrot and celery sticks
cooking spray

Heat oven to 425. Drain tofu and pat dry. Grate tofu into a medium bowl. Add bread crumbs, celery, hot pepper sauce, mayonnaise and egg; stir until blended.

Roll a rounded tablespoon of mixture into a ball, place on baking sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, and press to flatten tops slightly. Repeat with remaining tofu mixture to make 20 balls. Spray tops lightly with cooking spray.

Bake for 10 minutes. Turn with spatula and bake 5 to 7 minutes more or until golden brown on both sides.

Pack the cooled buffalo bites, ranch dressing and vegetable sticks in 3 separate containers. When it’s time to eat, dip away and enjoy!

Instead of the panko breadcrumbs, use a combination of shredded parmesan cheese and some spices such as onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika.
