Hello & Happy Thursday!!
Let’s talk chicken and waffles!
No matter where you are, this combo is commonplace. While the standard version is a go to for everyone, you can easily make a vegan fried chicken using tofu. I know what you’re thinking, tofu? Hard pass. However, tofu is one of those hidden gems that can really make an impactful dish if done right.
If done wrong, the experience can haunt your for the rest of your life lol. So if you’re searching for an opportunity to fall back in love with tofu, this is it!
Believe it or not, this was one of the first recipes I did back in 2014. I loved the idea of fried tofu in place of chicken, the combination of sweet and spicy, and a savory waffle to tie it all together. For many, rosemary in a waffle could sound off-putting. I’m telling you though, the combo of all these flavor profiles together, truly make this dish what it is.. amazing!
What’s fab about this dish? Too much! It’s so easy to throw together, features staple ingredients, you can even mix up the marinade ingredients, it’s crispy, crunchy, the inside chewy like animal protein from the freezing method, the waffles stay crisp and don’t get soggy (swear on my life), the hot honey sweet and spicy, and the rosemary waffle just takes this dish next level!
