I hope you all are enjoying the summer! I’ve been enjoying time with my kids and planning out our days with fun activities. We’ve enjoyed our holiday breaks too and looking forward to our upcoming trip to Boston,Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard! We’ve also been enjoying our grilled foods over the summer and trying out different marinades. Sriracha is one of my favorites and I’ve been using it on Fish,Chicken and Tofu. I love the flavor and it just makes everything tastier!

Fried Sriracha Tofu

The recipe I have for you today is Sriracha Tofu and its an amazing appetizer with the flavors from the Sriracha along with a hint of soy and honey.Vegans can use brown sugar.The result is a spicy yet slightly sweet marinade that coats the tofu perfectly and its then pan-fried until those wonderfully crisp edges are visible.

It’s an appetizer or main protein that literally takes minutes to make and will make your vegan and vegetarian guests happy too! Just marinate the tofu in the mix for 10 minutes to soak in the flavors. Throw it on the grill, pan fry, or bake it in the oven. It tastes delicious and it’s perfect for entertaining. Enjoy!
