Easy Baked Buffalo Tofu

5 from 2 reviews

A simple, healthy, protein-packed vegan main! Perfect for dinners, bowls, salads, and more!



1 block extra-firm tofu, pressed and drained of excess water for 30 minutes
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne
salt + pepper
2 Tbsp cornstarch (or arrowroot powder)
1/4 cup hot sauce / buffalo sauce (I always use Frank’s)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut your tofu into small squares / rectangles. My pieces were about an inch tall and a 1/2-inch wide.
  3. In a large bowl, combine your olive oil, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Mix. Add your tofu chunks, and carefully toss to coat. Add your cornstarch, and toss to coat again.
  4. Add your tofu to the prepared baking sheet, laying the tofu in an even, single layer, making sure that none of the pieces are touching.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the tofu pieces and bake for another 15 minutes.
  6. Add the baked tofu to a large bowl and toss with buffalo sauce. Return the tofu to the baking sheet and bake for another 10 minutes. Yum!
